Viewers of Good Morning Britain have mocked a question relating to voter ID that was posed on the day of the 2024 General Election.

Presenters Kate Garrway and Adi Ray were discussing voter ID on the ITV programme, but a viewer question that was read out received some ridicule.

The question related to whether an individual could use their library card or Tesco Clubcard as a form of ID at a polling station.

These forms of ID would not be accepted and some people took the time to post on X (formerly known as Twitter) to joke about it.

One person shared: "This viewer question read out (with a straight face) on Good Morning Britain HAS to be a p***take."

Another posted: "If you need to ask whether your Tesco Clubcard counts as ID for voting, it's best that you aren't able to vote. One less for Reform."

Meanwhile, another wrote: "Can I use my Tesco Clubcard as ID to vote….these questions on #GMB".

One person saw the funny side, posting: "I’ve got a gym membership card from 2010 that’s in my mate's name because we shared it, then we got kicked out…can I vote ? #gmb".

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You can still use your photo ID if it's out of date, as long as it looks like you.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.
