Individual Electoral Registration Goes Live

 

The way people register to vote has changed.

 

Individual Electoral Registration

 

This is a new system of registration which has been introduced to ensure greater confidence as to the identity of electors and improved access to the registration process.

 

Individual registration will require each person to register themselves and to provide personal identifiers - date of birth and national insurance number. This will allow registration officers to cross check the information provided against national databases and other council records before a person is added to the register.

 

To register online under the new system

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.

  • Visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
  • Fill in your name, address, date of birth and other information. 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.
  • When your information is verified, we will send you an acknowledgment letter.
