ARE YOU REGISTERED TO VOTE IN YOUR AREA?

Who is eligible to vote in an election?

To vote in a UK general election you must:

  • Be 18 or over on the day of the election.
  • Be a British, Irish or qualifying Commonwealth citizen.
  • Be resident at an address in the UK (or a British citizen living abroad who has been registered to vote in the UK in the last 15 years).
  • Not be legally excluded from voting.

You also need to be on the electoral register. You only have to register once but will need to re-register if you have changed your address, name or nationality since you first registered.
