Do I have to prove who I am when I go to vote?

Do I have to prove who I am when I go to vote?

A:

No. Voters are only asked to verbally confirm identity. No proof of identity is expected. There is no effective procedural barrier to you voting in whosever name happens to be on the electoral roll at a polling place.  Voting in someone else's name is a criminal offence.
