Like compound verbs, the passive voice has two components:

 auxiliary verbconjugation
1. serdepends 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.
