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 each month from April to September this year. You just need to fill in a voter registration form and send it back to us. You can download the form at the bottom of this page.

There are some criteria you have to meet to be able to register, so if you're not sure if you're eligible to vote click on Who is eligible? on the left-hand side.

Annual Registration

You must confirm your registration every year. You will have received a household registration form sometime from October last year to which you should have responded for your household to be included in the revised register published on 17 February 2014.

Rolling Registration

If you move house or your details change, you can update your registration at any time of year by downloading and completing a new voter registration form. You'll then be notified of the changes to the electoral register in writing, which you may want to keep as proof of your registration.
