How to register to vote
Under the new voter registration system, you can now register to vote online on the Gov.uk website.
In order to make the registration process more secure, you will be required to provide a few more details, such as your date of birth and National Insurance number.
If you have lost your National Insurance number, visit the Gov.uk website's lost National Insurance number page to find out your number.
