Registering to vote for UK Elections or Referendums
Registering to vote is not only the way to choose the UK Parliament and European representatives but it gives you a say on important issues that could affect you such as education, public transports, public health, security, climate change, etc.
It means you can if you want to and doesn’t mean that you have to. You can’t vote if you are aged under 18 years old.
At the present date, only UK, Commonwealth or European Union citizens are eligible to vote. There are two easy ways to register:
1) You should receive the registration form at home between August and September from your local Electoral Registration Office.
2) If you didn’t receive the registration form, you have to contact your Electoral Registration Office in order to fill out a request.
