Voting is your chance to elect those you believe will best represent your interests, in local, national and European matters. Find what you can vote for at different elections in the UK.
You need to be on the electoral register to vote in elections and referendums. You can register to vote online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. You will need your National Insurance number (if you have one). You will also need to give your name, address and previous address, nationality and date of birth. If this information cannot be verified during the checking process the local Electoral Registration Officer will contact you for more information before you can be registered to vote.
