The registration system changed in June 2014. The new system is
called ‘Individual Electoral Registration’ and allows you
to register online.
How is the new system different?
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.
How do I register under the new system?
Go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
- The form is simple to complete - fill in your name, address,
date of birth and a few other details. You’ll need your
National Insurance number.
