Registering to vote

You can only vote in elections if:

  • your name is on the register
  • you are a British, Irish, Qualifying Commonwealth or European Union citizen.

Please note that:

  • every person must register themselves individually
  • one person can no longer register for everyone who lives at their address
  • registering for other council services does not register you to vote.
