Your chance to vote

If you want to vote at an election or referendum in the UK, you must be on the electoral register.

You can register to vote online at in just a few minutes using a simple form.

You will be asked to provide your National Insurance number, your date of birth and your address. If you do not have them, you can still register to vote but will need to send additional documents. Follow the instructions in the form for more information. 
You only need to register once - you don’t need to register separately for every election. You must register again if you’ve changed address, name or nationality.
