Special Category Electors
Special provision is made to enable certain groups to register to vote even though they may live or work overseas or have no permanent address at which to register. These are known as special category electors.
With the exception of Service Voters which remain valid for five years, all other special category electors require annual renewals to be completed in order to remain registered. These are sent by the Electoral Registration Officer to your last notified address up to three months before your current registration expires. This should allow you time to complete and return your form to us for processing. If we do not hear back from you, we remove your name at the end of that period and write to you to explain why.
