Register to vote

If you want to have your say at an election in the UK, you must be registered to vote.

If you’re not already on the electoral roll, you need to register to vote by:

  • Midnight on Thursday 13 April to vote at elections in England and Wales
  • Midnight on Monday 17 April to vote at elections in Scotland

You can register to vote online.

How do I check if I'm registered to vote?

Every local authority holds the electoral register for their own area. There is no online electoral roll.

To check if you are registered to vote, you will need to contact your local electoral registration office.

Contact your local authority
Make sure you have the right to have your say

Why should I register to vote?

Being able to vote gives you a say on who represents you in your local council, in the UK Parliament and in Europe. If you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, being registered also gives you a say in who represents you there.

At any election in your area, one of the candidates will be selected to represent you whether you vote or not. If you’re registered, you’ll have the chance to have a say on who represents you by voting.

Some people are quick to say when they disagree with politicians, but if you don’t register and don’t vote, you won’t be able to have your say.
