Register to vote in the general election

31st May 2024


The general election has been announced for Wednesday 4 July. In order to vote, you’ll need to make sure you’ve registered by midnight on Tuesday 18 June.

If you’ve moved home or changed your name for any reason, you should register to vote again.

For the first time at a UK general election, you’ll need to show an accepted form of photographic identification, like your passport, driving license or bus pass.

To register to vote online, you need just five minutes and your National Insurance number. You can also register by filling in a paper form.
