Your Vote

In order to vote in a Local Government, European or Parliamentary election or in a local or national referendum you must be registered on the Electoral Roll (Register of Electors).

The way we all register to vote has changed. The registration system changed in June 2014. The new system is called ‘Individual Electoral Registration’. Those already on the electoral role will have been transferred automatically to the new system.

You’ll need your National Insurance number to hand if you wish to complete the registration process smoothly. If you don’t have your National Insurance number handy, the government may contact you to confirm your identity.
