Registering to vote
Register to vote
Register to vote to have your say in local, national and European elections, and in referendums and police commissioner votes.
If your name is not included on the electoral register, you can't have a say in issues that affect you, and it's harder to get a loan, mortgage, finance agreement, or even a mobile phone contract.
It's easy to register. You just need your National Insurance Number. If you can't find your number, see www.gov.uk/lost-national-insurance-number
If you're not sure if you've registered, register anyway as duplicate entries will be removed by our system and will not affect your right to vote.
Who can register?
You can register to vote if you are:
- 16 or older (although you can't vote until you're 18); and
- a British citizen; and
- an Irish qualifying commonwealth or European Union citizen living in the UK; and
- resident at your address for at least six months of the year
- If you are a student, you can register at your home address and your term-time address. See Registering as a student for more detailed information.
If you have any issues with registering to vote, please contact the Electoral Services Team via email email@example.com or via phone 01483 523116
