Registering to vote

Register to vote

You can use the online service to register to vote or to:

  • update your details on the electoral register
  • change how you vote, for example in person or by post 
  • change whether you're on the open register

It takes around five minutes. You'll need your National Insurance number (NI).

Register to vote

If you're a student, you can register to vote at both your home and term-time addresses, as long as they're not in the same council area.

If your main address is a caravan or park home, you can still register to vote. If your poll card doesn't come in the post at election time you can find out where your polling station is online. You don't need your poll card to vote.
