Key considerations for the implementation of the Elections Act 2022

We have published two pieces of guidance highlighting key areas of planning for ROs and EROs on the Elections Act 2022. In the first piece of guidance we cover the new requirements under the Voter ID and accessibility provisions, and in the second we cover the various provisions included in Tranche 2, which will be implemented throughout 2023 and 2024 . This guidance is based on our current knowledge of UK Government implementation plans and will be updated as needed. We will highlight when any changes are made in future EA Bulletins.
