The electoral register (sometimes called the ‘electoral roll’) is a list of everyone who is registered to vote. If you want to vote you must be on the electoral register. Paying council tax does not mean you are registered to vote.
Join the electoral register or update your address details
You can apply to join the electoral register or update your address details at GOV.UK. You will need your National Insurance number. If you cannot find your National Insurance number you can look on the GOV.UK page: find a lost national insurance number.
Update other details
You do not need to visit GOV.UK to make other changes to the electoral register. You can use the form at the bottom of this page to:
- tell the Council that an elector has died (you can also use the GOV.UK Tell Us Once service)
- change your name
- tell the Council that someone has left the property
- report other electoral issues
