Registering to vote
How to register
To be able to vote your name must be included on the register of electors.
Between August and October every year, by law, we prepare a new register of electors. This is known as the annual canvass.
If you have not yet registered or have moved home recently you can register to vote on the GOV.UK website.
There are special arrangements for your registration if you are
- a member of the armed forces (or partner),
- a Crown Servant,
- a British council employee,
- other overseas elector
If you are a
- patient in a mental hospital
- remand prisoner
- homeless person
