Register to vote
You can only vote in an election if your name's on the Electoral Register at the time nominations for that election close.
You are responsible for registering to vote.
The quickest and easiest way is to register online at GOV.UK - you'll be asked to enter your:
- current address, and previous address if you've recently moved
- date of birth
- national insurance number
If your application is valid, we'll write to you to confirm you've been added to the Electoral Register.
From 4 May 2023, voters in England will also need to show photo ID to vote at polling stations in some elections.
