Register to vote


The way we all register to vote has changed

The registration system changed in June 2014. The new system is called ‘Individual Electoral Registration’.

How is the new system different?

How do I register under the new system?

  1. Go to GovUK: Individual Electoral Registration  opens in a new window
  2. 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.
  3. Look out for a confirmation to say you’re registered.
