How to register to vote in General Election

Posted onPosted on 11th Jun

As the General Election on 4th July moves closer, people wanting to vote are being reminded what they need to do.

If you are not already on the electoral roll, you will need to register to vote by 11.59pm on Tuesday, 18th June.

If you want to vote by post – and have not previously arranged to receive postal votes for 4th July – you need to apply for a postal voting pack by 5pm on Wednesday, 19th June.

If you want someone else to cast your ballot on your behalf, you need to apply for a proxy vote by 5pm on Wednesday, 26th June.

If you do not have a suitable form of voter ID (since last year voters are required to present  photo ID such as a passport, or photo driving licence, or a Blue Badge, or an older person’s bus pass, or a disabled person’s bus pass, for full list click here ) you need to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate by 5pm on Wednesday, 26th June.
