Registering to vote

Do I have to register? What happens if I don't?

If you have received an invitation to register to vote, either by post or by email it is important that you respond.  If you don't, you will be sent reminders and someone will visit your home.  At the end of this process you may be sent a requirement to register, if you fail to do so without providing adequate reasons as to why you have not you may be fined £80.  Not being registered can also impact on applications for mortgages or mobile phones, since credit reference agencies use the register to validate applications.

 

Why do you want my National Insurance number?

Under the individual electoral registration system people need to provide a few more details about themselves to register - these are date of birth and National Insurance number.  These details are checked against government records to verify the person's identity.  This is intended to make the system more secure.
