Thursday 4 May 2023 is polling day in Calderdale; for us this marks the end of our current council’s four-year term and means that voters in Todmorden will vote to elect all 18 town councillors at the same time.

From 4 May 2023 all voters in England will need to show photo ID to vote at polling stations in some elections.  This includes:

  • Local elections
  • Police and Crime Commissioner elections
  • UK parliamentary by-elections
  • Recall petitions

From October 2023 it will also apply to UK General elections.

A wide range of photo ID will be accepted, including passports, driving licences and cards with a PASS mark.  

If you do not have an accepted form of photo ID, you can apply for a free voter ID document known as a Voter Authority Certificate.

More information can be found at or by calling  Calderdale Council’s Electoral Services on 01422 393103 or by email [email protected]
