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, validated figures will be published as part of both the Cabinet Office and the independent Electoral Commission's 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.
