How do I register to vote?

Make sure you're registered to vote! Find out if you are on the electoral register, why you should register and how to register.

You can add your name to the Register of Electors at any time throughout the year. When you send us a completed, signed electoral registration form we will add your name to our list of new electors on the next possible monthly update, assuming you qualify and submit the form before the deadline.

To find out the registration deadlines for 2014 see our Register of Electors page.

You can download a registration form below or telephone our Elections team on 01476 40 60 80 to request a registration form. Alternatively you can visit our offices to complete the form in person.

Am I on the Electoral Register?

To find out if you are already on the Electoral Register, please contact us giving your name and address, and we will contact you to inform you whether you are currently on the Electoral Register.

Why should I register?

If you do not register then you cannot vote in any election! It is also much harder to obtain credit if you are not on the Register.

To find out more about the Register of Electors, and who has access to it, please see our page Register of Electors.
