Registering to vote

Can I register online?

You can make an 'application' to register online, your application is then reviewed by local electoral registration staff to decide if it is a successful application.  This means your registration is not complete until the application has been accepted.  You will receive a letter from the electoral registration office when your application is complete or if they need any other information from you.

How will I know if my application has been successful?

You’ll be sent a letter from local electoral registration staff confirming that your registration was successful, or asking for more information if that is required. If you have provided your email address or phone numbers, you may be contacted that way instead.

Can I register someone else online?

Everybody needs to register themselves to vote.  It is straightforward and quick, you can register at www.gov.uk/registertovote.  If you are unable to register yourself, it’s ok to get help filling in the details, but you must make the declaration yourself. In certain circumstances, someone who has been granted appropriate power of attorney may be able to make the declaration on your behalf. If you need any further assistance with this you can contact a member of the team on 024 7683 3034.

Can I check if I am already registered online?

You are not able to check if you are already registered online, you need to contact the electoral services team - [email protected] 

Is the data I enter online secure? 

The online registration service and the data you provide is secure. It has been independently accredited, tested for security, and developed to meet best practice guidelines for data security.

My online form won't submit, what should I do?

If you have problems completing the online form, local electoral registration staff will be able to help you with the problem. The online service is designed with one question per screen and provides clear error messages when something has gone wrong, so it should be straightforward to find out what the problem is. If you cannot solve the issue then please contact 024 7683 3034.
