You can register to vote even if you don’t have a permanent address. At the moment you don’t need ID to vote, you just need National Insurance Number.
You can register anonymously if you are concerned for your own safety.
Do it anytime during the year – don’t wait until an election is called. It can take up to 7 weeks to process your registration.
You only have to register again if you change address, name or nationality.
Registration takes 5 minutes online.
If you can’t get to a polling station on Election Day you can apply to vote by post. You can also ask to vote by ‘proxy’ which means someone else goes to the polling station for you.
