Register to vote

To vote in any election you must be registered to do so by midnight on the 12th working day before the election takes place.

The quickest way to register to vote is online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

You will need to enter your national insurance number as you register and you will also need to enter your date of birth. 

Following the fire, we can’t confirm your registration until our systems are fully restored.  Please don’t worry though, this will not stop you being able to vote in the elections in May.

Once you have registered you then need to decide how to cast your vote - this section includes how to sign up for a postal vote.
