Have your say and vote!


Have your say and vote!

Don’t forget to ‘have your say’ – by voting in the General Election on Thursday 12 December.

Why vote?

  1. By voting, you can support a candidate who will represent your views in Parliament, influence policies and raise local issues to the government.
  2. Previous years have seen constituencies won and lost by one or two votes. This is your chance to hold or swing your constituency from one party to another, or elect a brand new candidate.
  3. It is your right to vote: It is a privilege to be able to live in a democratic society, so exercise your right!

Remember, to vote in a UK general election you must:

  • be registered to vote
  • be 18 or over on the day of the election (‘polling day’)
  • be a British, Irish or qualifying Commonwealth citizen
  • be resident at an address in the UK (or a British citizen living abroad who has been registered to vote in the UK in the last 15 years)
  • not be legally excluded from voting

How do I vote?

You should have been sent a poll card telling you when to vote and at which polling station. You can only vote at the polling station location on your card.

If you have not received a poll card but think you should, contact your local Electoral Registration Office.

You can still vote if you've lost your card.
