Registering to vote
Please note - the way in which people register to vote has now changed.
The deadline for registering to vote at the Essex County Council elections on 4th May 2017 has now expired. However, you can still make an application to register for the forthcoming Parliamentary Election.
A new process of Individual Electoral Registration (IER) was introduced in June 2014. People are now responsible for their own registration and have to make their own application to register to vote each time they move.
In order to register, each applicant will be required to include their national insurance number and date of birth in their application. This information will be used to verify that the applicant is who they say they are.
For the first time, people are able to register on line. If you move home, just visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. The whole process should take about 5 minutes.
Alternatively, we can send you a form to complete. Forms can be obtained from the Electoral Registration Office, either by telephoning 01277 312709 or email email@example.com.
