Voting in elections and referendums

Are you registered to vote?

People in England and Wales are now required to register as individuals using a system called 'Individual Electoral Registration' (IER). 

Previously, registration was completed by the householder, who was responsible for completing the registration form on behalf of all residents eligible to vote in the household.  Under IER, everyone in the household who is eligible to vote is responsible for registering themselves individually. Further information is available from GOV.UK >>

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

If you want to find out if you are already on the Electoral Register or if you are unable to register online, please contact us >>

You can register online in less than five minutes! The deadline for registering to vote for the general election in December us 11:59pm on Tuesday 26th November.
