Who is eligible to register to vote? You can register to vote in the UK if you are:
• resident (usually live in the UK), and
• aged 16 or over (although you won’t be able to vote until you are 18).
You must also be either:
• a British, Irish or European Union citizen, or
• a Commonwealth citizen who has leave to remain in the UK or who does not require leave to remain in the UK.
If you are – or know – a homeless person (remember, homelessness is far more varied than rough-sleeping), you can find the form for voter registration here. The deadline to register is 22 May, so don’t delay.
