Electoral Register

Being registered on the electoral register is required by law and is the only way you are entitled to vote. You need to register for the address you live at (it doesn't matter if you rent or own the property).  Although you do not have to vote on election day (it is your choice), you are required by law to register. 

Each year, by law, the Electoral Registration Officer has to prepare a new and accurate voters lists. The only way we can collect the information required is by sending a new electoral registration form to every household (annual canvass). Other council records are not used, for instance you may be registered for council tax, but this does not put you on the electoral register.
