Voting

The way we all register to vote has changed. The new system is called ‘Individual Electoral Registration’. You can still contact your local district or borough council to register to vote, or you can now register online.

Under the old system the ‘head of every household’ could register everyone who lived at their address. Under the new system, everyone is responsible for registering themselves. You need to provide a few more details to register – including your national insurance number and date of birth. This makes the electoral register more secure.

How do I register to vote?

  1. Go to GOV.UK: Register to vote
  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
