What happens if I have lost my photographic ID or Voter Authority Certificate?

 In this circumstance, where the elector has lost all forms of photographic ID or the Voter Authority Certificate ahead of the 5pm deadline 6 working days before any scheduled poll (next scheduled elections are May 2024) and they do not have any of the other forms of acceptable ID, they can reapply for a Voter Authority Certificate. 

Where an elector has lost, destroyed, damaged or had their photographic ID stolen and they become aware of this after the 5pm deadline 6 working days before poll to apply for the Voter Authority Certificate, there will be the provision for an elector to appoint an emergency proxy for that polling day.
