Register to vote
How to register
The easiest way to register is to visit the Government website on your computer, tablet or smartphone.
The application takes roughly 5 minutes and will ask for your name, date of birth, nationality, national insurance number and a few other details.
You can also register by calling or emailing your local elections office, as long as you have all of the necessary details as listed above.

You can also use the ‘Register to vote’ service to:
- change your name, address or nationality
- get on or off the open register
To do this, you need to register again with your new details (even if you’re already registered to vote).
