Elections - Register to vote

Register to vote

To be able to vote you must first be registered.

You can register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. Registration is quick, free and simple and will only take a few minutes. It will mean you have the right to vote at elections and being registered could also improve your credit rating. Please note that you will need to have your National Insurance number when you register. Once we receive your application we will write to you to confirm you will be added to the Register or to ask for further information.

There are deadlines to register, so it will normally take up to six weeks to be added to the Register from the time you submit a completed application. Just before an election, you must register around two weeks before polling day to be able to vote.

You will need to tell us about changes to your registration.

If you need any help in registering to vote, or want to check if you are already registered, please email us at voting@tmbc.gov.uk.
