How do I register?

It's easy to get your name on the electoral register, if it's not already, with the register being updated every month from January to September. You can now register online in less than three minutes at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. You will need your national insurance number to-hand. Alternatively you can contact electoral services at electoral.services@islington.gov.uk or call 020 7527 3110. 

There are some criteria you must meet to be able to register - if you're not sure you're eligible to vote, click Who can vote? on the right.

 

Annual Registration

You must confirm your registration every year. You will receive a household registration form in late August, to which you should respond to confirm the details of the household for a further year.

 

Rolling Registration

If you need to make changes or register throughout the year it will work in accordance with the statutory timetable below.
