Election - hop to it and register to vote

Residents who are not currently registered to vote are reminded that they only have until tomorrow evening (Tuesday, 26 November) to register their details to vote in the UK parliamentary elections taking place on 12 December.

A national online registration system is the quick, easy and secure way to register.

You need to register online by 11.59pm tomorrow (Tuesday, 26 November) to be able to vote in the general election on 12 December.

Or, if you want to apply to vote by post in England, Scotland or Wales, you have to register before 5pm tomorrow (26 November).

If you are going to be abroad on election day, you can apply to vote by proxy after you have registered. The government advises that it takes time to vote by post from overseas.

Residents who were registered to vote for the last UK parliamentary election, and still live at the same address, will be automatically registered and do not need to fill in the form again.

Those who have moved house, or who are registering for the first time, should go to the government’s national, online registration system and fill in their name, address, date of birth and national insurance number.

On polling day (12 December) it will be up to you to vote for your preferred candidate to represent your constituency area as its Member of Parliament (MP).

By polling day, everyone who has registered to vote should have been sent a polling card by Royal Mail. This will tell you where your polling station is. In December, you will also be able to find your polling station, a list of candidates, and other useful information at www.ealing.gov.uk/elections ahead of the big day.

Advice on registering to vote is available from the council’s electoral services team on 020 8825 7777 between 8.30am and 5pm (today and tomorrow) or by email at elections@ealing.gov.uk
