Government changes to the voting system for elections

The Government has changed the way we vote in our elections and referendums, meaning all Lambeth voters will need to show photo ID in order to vote in local elections and by-elections and UK Parliamentary by-elections from May 2023. 

There are no scheduled elections in Lambeth until May 2024 - the elections for Mayor of London and the Greater London Authority Assembly Members.

However, we suggest you check now to see if you already have the required photo ID. If you do not, you can then apply now for a free Voter Authority Certificate. You do not need photo ID to vote by post, and anyone can apply for a postal vote.
