Are you registered to vote?
Registering to vote has never been so easy. You can to register to vote at any time of the year, you do not need to wait until the next election is announced.
Anyone can vote by post if they wish to.
For voters who move house, reregistering to vote at a new address should become something that is part of the moving house agenda - just like notifying the gas and electricity suppliers.
In order to vote in an election, an individual's name needs to be on the electoral register. You can be added to the electoral register at any time of the year. A list of changes to the register is published each month to take account of house moves, deaths and other amendments.
If you wish to be registered, and don't think you currently are, you can register by completing the form below:

We are also able to register people who do not have a permanent residence, for example
- Homeless people who have no permanent address can make a declaration of local connection - giving an address of or nearest to a place where the person spends a substantial amount of this time for example a local café.
- People in mental hospitals (other than those who are held there because of criminal behaviour) are able to register to vote. Voluntary patients (who were previously the only group of mental patients able to register) can make a patient's declaration.
- Unconvicted or remand prisoners are able to register in the establishment where they are held if they are likely to be spending a long period remanded in custody. Convicted prisoners are still unable to vote.
