Residents have until Monday, 20 April to register their details in time to vote.

Until recently, every household was asked to register to vote on one form with one adult taking responsibility for returning information for all the eligible people at one address.

Now, as part of the national move towards an individual electoral registration (IER) system, everyone eligible to vote will have to register individually, across the country. IER is being used in a bid to cut down on electoral fraud and to increase confidence in the system.

To make the process easier, it is now possible to register online.

Online registration is quick, secure and convenient and people simply have to provide their name, address, date of birth and national insurance number. Postal registration is also available.

Most residents who are currently registered to vote will be registered automatically under the new system but some will need to re-register and others will need to check their details. People who are not on the electoral roll will receive information on how to register to vote.

The council’s electoral services team is available between 8.30am–5pm (Monday–Friday) on 020 8825 7777 or by email Or alternatively visit for more information.

The parliamentary elections take place on 7 May.
