Register to Vote


​Who can vote

To register to vote you must be:

  • 18 years old or over
  • On the electoral register
  • A British, Irish, or Commonwealth citizen
To be on the register you must have filled in an electoral registration form; paying council tax, for example, does not mean you are registered to vote. Registration can now be done online.

If you are 16 or 17 years old or if you are a national from another European Union country you can still be added to the electoral register using the online application but you will not be able to vote in the General Election.
