In order to vote in the general election on 8 June, you must ensure you are registered to vote by 22 May.

Registering only takes a few minutes and all you need is your address and your National Insurance number. You can check if you are already registered by contacting your local Electoral Registration Office.

Click here to register if you are in England, Scotland or Wales. If you are in Northern Ireland, click here.

Remember that you can opt-out of the 'open register' if you would prefer. This does not affect your right to vote.

How does the General Election work?

What if I can't get to the polling station on 8 June?

You can apply to vote by post or by proxy if you're not able to get to your polling station on the day.

I'm moving house, how do I cast my vote?

If you have recently moved house, you should register to vote at your new address by 22 May. If you are moving house after the 22 May and before polling day on 8 June, you should register at your current address (i.e. the place you will still be living at on 22 May). You can then apply to vote by post or, if you prefer, you can vote in person at the polling station near your registered address.
