Register to vote

To take part in any election, you must be listed on the electoral register for the area in which you live. You can usually check the register in your local library, council office, or by contacting the Electoral Registration Office in your area. If you are not on the electoral roll, you can be added at any time, subject to a few conditions.

You can register to vote at GOV.UK website. You can also update your name, address or other details on the electoral register at any time.
