Currently you can apply to go onto the register when you turn 16. We will hold your application in our system and contact you closer to your 18th birthday. Sometimes it is necessary for you to fill out your application again depending on when you first apply, but we will inform you if this is the case. Once you are registered we'll automatically send you your polling card when an election is due.

 

Don't forget to tell us if you move house before you turn 18

Just complete the online form again

You can register and vote

You must be registered before you can vote.

 

If you applied to be added when you were 16 or 17 we will write to you letting you know if your application is successful or if you need to apply again. If you did not apply then please feel free to register. Please be aware anytime you changed address, you will need to apply again.

Are you at University?

If you are living away from home then you have two options:

  1. You can apply for a postal vote which means your postal ballot pack will be
    sent to your term-time address.  To apply for a postal vote you need to
    fill in a Postal Application form. Click the button below to go to our
    Application and Waiver webpage:

    Application and Waiver Forms

 

2. You can register at both districts for your home and your University address but you can only vote once in a General Election and a European Parliamentary Election.

 

Should you wish to receive a postal application please contact the office in the area you wish to register your vote before an Election takes place.

We will then send you a polling card to your term time address so you can vote.

If you are at University but still living at home then you can register and vote as normal giving your home address.
