Are you registered to vote?

Up to now, the head of a household has been responsible for registering everyone who lives there. Now people in England and Wales are to register as individuals instead, using a new system called 'Individual Electoral Registration'.

Most people who are already registered to vote are being moved onto the new system automatically. So you may not need to do anything.

Look out for a letter from us. The letter will tell you whether you've been moved automatically, or whether you need to register on the new system. You can register online in less than 5 minutes.
