Plan to stop people voting without photo ID confirmed in Queen’s Speech

A controversial plan to prevent people from voting unless they carry photographic ID at polling stations has been confirmed in the Queen’s Speech today.

The government had been accused of attempting to suppress voters’ rights after the idea to introduce compulsory photo ID for voters was leaked.

Its proposals involve making it compulsory to show ID such as driving licences or passports at the ballot box to be able to vote in a general or local election.
