Register to Vote

It is quick and easy to register to vote

Apply online at https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

You will need your National Insurance (NI) number and date of birth - it will take around five minutes to apply.

If you are not already on the electoral register, you can register to vote in local and national elections, as well as referendums, if you are:

  • 16 or older (although you can not vote until you are 18 years old)
  • a British citizen
  • an Irish, eligible commonwealth or European Union citizen living in the UK

Full details of eligibility can be found at https://www.gov.uk/elections-in-the-uk

If you have moved recently

If you've changed address, you will need to re-register at your new address- even if you have moved within the same council area.  You can do this online at https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
