The British public deserves to have confidence in our democracy.
The success of the voter ID pilots in May 2018 proves that voter ID is a reasonable and proportionate measure and voters were fully aware of the changes on polling day.
That view was shared by the voter ID pilot authorities who attended a meeting in July. All pilot local authorities are volunteers. No pilot authority has raised an objection and the Government continues to work closely and collaboratively with pilot authorities from 2018 and those who have volunteered to pilot voter ID at this year’s May elections.
