Register to vote - Changes to registration

Previously voter registration was done by household.  One person in the household completed a form and entered the details of everyone who lived there, who were eligible to vote.  Now everyone needs to register individually.

Registering to vote

If you move house, or if you are not registered for another reason, you can apply to be added through monthly alterations.  When we make monthly alterations to the registers we also delete names and make any changes that are needed.

In order to register please complete the online registration application, this takes around five minutes and you will need your national insurance number and date of birth before you begin.

You can register up to 11 working days before an election. This means that there are different deadlines before elections.
