Register to Vote
The registration system to vote changed in June 2014, with the new system called ‘Individual Electoral Registration’ (IER).
Test Valley Borough Council have written to anyone who needs to re-register, as everyone is now responsible for registering themselves, unlike the old system when the ‘head of every household’ could register everyone who lived at their address.
If you weren’t registered to vote previously, you can register under the new system. Go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote fill in your name, address, date of birth and national insurance number and get confirmation to say you’re registered.
If you were already registered to vote, you should have received a letter from TVBC to tell you whether you need to take action to join the new register. Most people who are currently registered have been added to the new register automatically. The letter will tell you if you’ve already been added to the new register. If you need to re-register, the letter will tell you what you need to do. Registering to vote is free.
If you haven’t received a letter about registration, you should contact TVBC Electoral Services for information on whether or not you need to do anything.
