Electoral Registration

The Register of Electors lists the names and addresses of everyone who is eligible to vote in public elections and referendums.

You need to register in order to vote.  Also being on the register may improve your credit rating.

Once you are registered you will not need to re-register for each election / referendum.  If you are unsure whether you are already registered, you can contact us on 01322 343501 or use this form to contact the IER team.

If you have moved home you need to re-register from your new address.  Being registered for council tax does not mean that you are automatically registered to vote.

How do I register?

The quickest and easiest way to register is on-line via the Government Website.   You will need to fill in your name, address, date of birth and National Insurance number. The process will only take a few minutes.

Postal / Proxy Voting

This cannot be applied for on-line as a signed application form is required.  To download a form and for more information go to Your Vote Matters.
