Registering to vote

You need to be on the electoral register to be able to vote in local and national elections and referendums. Each individual is responsible for their own registration.

You can register to vote if you're:

  • 16 or older - although you can't vote until you're 18
  • a British citizen, qualifying Commonwealth, Irish or other European Union citizen living in the UK.

The easiest way to register is online. You'll need to give your name, address, date of birth and national insurance number.

You can also change your details online if, for example, you've moved home.

If you have recently married or changed your name by deed poll you will need to let us know.
