Voter ID is part of a body of work this Government is delivering to strengthen the integrity

of our electoral system and give the public confidence our elections are secure and fit

for the 21st century.

In line with the 2018 pilot evaluation, fully validated figures will be published as part of both

the Cabinet Office and the independent Electoral Commission's full evaluations of the

2019 voter ID pilots in the summer. We will be looking carefully at the evaluations to help

inform our next steps and shape how the final policy will look when it is introduced.
