This guide will help you to register to vote, here on GOV.UK.

Registering to vote will let you have your say in local elections, general elections and referendums.

People with a learning disability have the same right to vote as everyone else.

You only need to register once - you do not need to register separately for every election. You must register again if you’ve changed address, name or nationality.
