You’ve probably seen the adverts on TV - you know, the ones with the massive post-it notes, urging voters to bring photographic ID to the polling station.

But if you intend to vote at the July 4 general election and haven’t got an appropriate form of photo ID, then you better get a move on.

Would-be voters have until 5pm next Wednesday, June 24, to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate.

Applications can be made through while passports, driving licences and certain kinds of bus passes are among the forms of ID that will be accepted at polling stations.
