Like compound verbs, the passive voice has two components:

  auxiliary verb conjugation
1. ser depends on tense/mood
2. main verb past participle

This can be done with any tense and mood.

Por ejemplo …

    Voz activa   Voz pasiva
presente   yo hago la comida   la comida es hecha por mí
pretérito     yo hice la comida   la comida fue hecha por mí
imperfecto   yo hacía la comida   la comida era hecha por mí
futuro   yo haré la comida   la comida será hecha por mí
subjuntivo   … que yo haga la comida   … que la comida sea hecha por mí
et cetera

 Did you notice that the past participle of hacer, normally hecho, is hecha in these examples? That’s because the past participle behaves like an adjective here, meaning that it has to agree with the subject – in this case, la comida, in gender and number.
