Registering to vote enables you to have your say and take part in the democratic process which decides how Charnwood and the country is run.

You can register to vote from the age of 16 although you will not be able to vote until you are 18.

You don’t need to register to vote before every election.

If you have moved house, you need to register to vote again. Paying Council Tax will not automatically register you to vote. Electoral registration is separate from other parts of the council.

If you change your name for any reason, you can either contact Electoral Services and request a change of name form or register to vote again.

Register to vote

To register to vote online, you need just five minutes. If you require help registering, you can contact our Customer Service team by calling 01509 634546 or contact Electoral Services to request a paper registration form.

Not being registered may negatively impact applications for mortgages, credit cards, store cards, overdrafts or mobile phone contracts as credit reference agencies use the electoral register to validate applications.

Am I already registered?

If you're not sure if you have already registered to vote, you can contact Electoral Services to find out.
