A BMG Research poll has found that almost three in ten (29%) Brits think you need to take your ID with you to the ballot box to cast your vote at the General Election.

Among 18-24 year-olds this figure rises to near four in ten (38%).

Those who did not vote at the EU referendum last year, or at the previous General Election in 2015, are the most likely to think ID is required (40% and 38% respectively).

More than half of the UK population (56%) correctly realise that, in fact, ID is not required, rising to nearly three-quarters (74%) of the over 65s.

Overall, 15% of Brits don’t know whether you need your ID to vote, increasing to 34% among 18-24s.

Fieldwork dates, methodology and a full breakdown of these results can be found here.
