Why is this important?
There are lots of reasons that you might not have an ID. Over 3 million British people don't. Maybe you don’t drive or travel. Or money's too tight to pay the fee required to get a driver’s license or passport. Maybe you just left it at home! But these aren't reasons to take away your right to vote.
The Government says that these measures are needed to prevent voter fraud. But there is no evidence that they need to. At the last general election police only had to investigate 164 claims of voter fraud - out of over 30 million votes cast - and none were found to be valid. Experts say this law could stop hundreds of thousands of people from voting. It’s a massive and dangerous overreaction.
