Deadline for registering to vote in the General Election

Register by 11:59pm on 26 November to vote in the General Election on 12 December.

If you want to apply to vote by post, register before:

  • 5pm on 26 November if you live in England, Scotland or Wales
  • 5pm on 21 November if you live in Northern Ireland

If you’re going to be abroad on election day, you can apply to vote by proxy after you’ve registered. It takes time to vote by post from overseas.

Who can register

You can register if you’re both:

  • aged 16 or over (or 14 or over in Scotland)
  • a UK citizen (or an Irish, EU or Commonwealth citizen with a permanent UK address)

You will not be able to vote until you are 18. If you live in Scotland, you can vote in Scottish Parliament and local elections when you’re 16.

Registering online

Register to get your name on the electoral register. You need to be on the electoral register to vote in elections and referendums.

You only need to register once - not for every election.
