Register to vote

Our offices are currently closed. Due to very limited access to any items of postage we receive, customers are urged to register online which means there will be no additional delay with processing your registration. Visit the GOV.UK website to register to vote.

Applications received through the post will be processed as soon as we are able to access these, but there may be a delay in doing so.

Important information

Please note: if you haven't been given a National Insurance number, you will need to provide a reason when applying. We will then contact you to provide further evidence as to your identity.

Why register?

  • You must be on the electoral register to vote in future elections and referendums.
  • By law, you must respond to an invitation to register to vote or you could be fined up to £80.
  • If you are not on the register you may find it harder to get a loan, mortgage, finance agreement, or even a mobile phone contract as the register is used by credit reference agencies.
