Registering to vote

The way we register to vote is called 'Individual Electoral Registration'.

How do I register?

  1. Everyone is responsible for registering themselves
  2. Go to register to vote at GOV.UK
  3. 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 on official paperwork such as payslips, or letters about benefits or tax credits
  4. Look out for a confirmation to say you're registered
