The deadline to register to vote in the general election is 20 April 2015.
Use this service to:
- register to vote
- update your name, address or other details on the electoral register
You need to be on the electoral register to vote in elections and referendums.
Registering takes around 5 minutes.
You’ll need your National Insurance number (if you have one).
Before you start
You can also register by post.
The online service is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).
You can’t register to vote if you’re in the UK illegally.
Public servants posted overseas
There are separate registration services for public servants who are likely to be posted overseas:
- Crown servants (eg diplomatic service, overseas civil service)
- British Council employees
- armed forces
You can still register as a non-service voter if you’re in the armed forces and have a permanent home address in the UK.
This service is for England, Wales and Scotland only.
You’ll need to register using a different form if you live in Northern Ireland.
