Can I vote in 2015 and how do I register?

To vote Green in 2015 or in any by-elections before then, you need to make sure that you are registered to vote.

***For the first time, voters in England are now able to register to vote online***

To register online go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

It only takes just a few minutes to make sure you can have your say!

To register online you need your National Insurance number (which can be found on your pay slips or on your P60). Click here to find out what to do if you don't receive pay slips and have lost your NI number.

You may also need your passport to register online if you’re living abroad. There are separate registration services for public servants who are likely to be posted overseas.

Can I vote in the General Election in 2015? 

You can vote in local government elections if you have registered to vote and you are:

  • 18 or over on election day. 16 and 17 year olds can register with their local borough and they will be added to the electoral register as soon as they become 18.
  • British, Commonweath or Irish Republic Citizen. Unfortunately EU citizens living in the UK are not eligable to vote in these elections.

Being registered with the council for services such as paying council tax will not automatically include you on the electoral register. Although both are held by the council, the two lists are separate.
