And you don’t need ID either. Not yet.

That’s all.

I think you do need ID in some areas! But yes most you don't need anything you just rock up

Sorry. Yes, you need ID in Northern Ireland.

And you don’t need to tell the people sitting outside what your voter number is

No, you don't need your card, but having worked as a Polling Clerk a few times, it does make things a lot easier for them to find you on the list! I never used to take mine with me before, but now I do! Just saying......

I misplaced mine once and you’d have thought I was a naughty kid when I got there - they were disappointed (and I was mildly amused - it took me the same amount of time to say my name and address, they just got all flustered for some bizarre reason)!

Absolutely, still - if it’s to hand then take it, but I’ve been reading some polls that say a lot of people don’t realise if they’ve lost the card they can still vote.
