Voter Registration Form

Registering to Vote

You can only vote in elections if your name is on the register of electors. We revise the register every autumn and an updated Register is published on 1st December each year. From 1st December each year until mid-August you can also add or re-register names.

All you have to do is fill in a voter registration form , which is attached to this page. You have to sign this form yourself, someone else cannot do it for you!

When you send us your form we will add you to our list of new applications. Any elector can then object to your name being added to the register. If this happens we will write to you.

If your application is not objected to, we will change your details within 2 to 6 weeks of receiving your form. We will write to tell you when your application is allowed.

In order to register you will need to print off and complete the form attached, then return itto the address printed on the form, which is:

Electoral Services, 
Civic Office, 
DN1 3BU.
