Applications for Voter Authority Certificates are processed by Electoral Registration Officers. This process involves reviewing the application and photograph and checking the applicant’s electoral registration status. Applicants must also provide their National Insurance number, which is checked against existing data sets, or other relevant documentary evidence where they are unable to provide this. Information on their average processing times is not held by the Department.
