24/10/2015 - The way you register to vote is changing

A new electoral registration system has been introduced across the country. 'Individual Electoral Registration' (IER) means that each person is now responsible for their own registration; one person can no longer register on behalf of a whole household.

If you need to register then you are now required to register individually and provide your date of birth and National Insurance number. The details you provide are then checked against government records for verification before you can be added to the register.

Do not miss out on your chance to vote

You can now register online, at gov.uk/register-to-vote

How to register to vote

Registering is quick, easy and secure

Go to gov.uk/register-to-vote

Fill in your name, address, date of birth and a few other details. You will need your National Insurance number. This can be found on your National Insurance Card, or in official paperwork such as payslips, or letters about benefits or tax credits.

Time is running out - register to vote today
