How to find us

What is Individual Electoral Registration?

How is the new system different?

  • You can now register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or over the phone by ringing 01656 643116

  • Everyone is responsible for registering themselves. Under the old system the ‘head of every household’ could register everyone who lived at their address.

  • You need to provide a few more details to register – including your national insurance number and date of birth. This makes the electoral register more secure.  Please ensure you have these to hand if you are using the online or telephone registration method.

How do i register under the new system?

  1. Go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

  2. Fill in your name, address, date of birth and a few other details. You’ll also need your national insurance number, which can be found on your national insurance card, or in official paperwork such as payslips, or letters about benefits or tax credits.

  3. Look out for a confirmation to say you’re registered.

Will i need to do anything?

  1. Look out for a letter in August 2014

    Most people who are already registered to vote will be registered automatically under the new system. They do not need to do anything. However, some people will need to take action to join the new register. We are writing to people to tell them whether they need to take action.

  2. Respond to the letter if you are asked to

    The letter will tell you whether you are on the new register or whether you need to take action. It will tell you what to do.
