How do I register?

  1. Go to: Register to vote .
  2. You will be asked to enter your name, address, date of birth and other details. You will need your National Insurance number. This can be found on your national insurance card, on official paperwork like payslips, or letters about pensions, benefits and tax credits.
  3. Once your application has been approved, you will be sent confirmation to say you have been registered.


Note: If you do not have a National Insurance number, you can still apply online. We will ask you to provide proof of your identity and proof of your address to support your application.

You can also register by completing an application form, or by phone: Contact: Electoral Services .

All applications are checked against government records, before you are added to the Electoral Register.
