You can only vote in elections if your name is on the register.
You can only register to vote if you are a British, Irish, Qualifying Commonwealth or European Union citizen.
Every person must register themselves individually. It is no longer the case that one person can register for everyone who lives at their address.
Registering is simple. Follow these steps:
- Go to GOV.UK using the green button below.
- Fill in your name, address, date of birth and a few other details. You'll also need your National Insurance number, which can be found on your National Insurance card, or in official paperwork such as payslips, or letters about benefits or tax credits.
- Once your details have been checked, we will send you a letter to confirm you have been added to the register of electors.
*You will be redirected to gov.uk.
