You will only need to show one form of photo ID. It needs to be the original version and not a photocopy.
You can still use your photo ID if it's out of date, as long as it looks like you.
The name on your ID should be the same name you used to register to vote.
You can apply for a free voter ID document, known as a Voter Authority Certificate, if:
you don't have an accepted form of photo ID.
you're not sure whether your photo ID still looks like you.
you're worried about using an existing form of ID for any other reason, such as the use of a gender marker.
You need to register to vote before applying for a Voter Authority Certificate.
