You can register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
You will need to provide 'identifying information', such as your date of birth and national insurance number when applying and your application will need to be verified with Government records before you are added to the register. If your details are not matched then you may be asked to provide an alternative form of evidence to prove your identity (for example a Passport, Photo Driving Licence, Biometric Residence Permit or National Identity Card). If you have the facility to scan documents, then we do accept a clear scanned copy and it can be emailed to [email protected].
Your national insurance number can be found on:
If you are still unable to find your National Insurance Number go to Find a lost National Insurance number
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 evidence as to your identity. This is usually a photocopy or scanned image of your driving licence or passport.
If you have received a letter telling you that you are registered to vote you do not need to do anything. You will receive a poll card before the next elections.
You can contact our Electoral Services department by using the contact details below. Please note that if you're emailing us we'll need your full name and address to check this for you.
