As people will no doubt have noticed …. a UK General Election is taking place on Thursday 12 December 2019.
To vote in a general election you need to
You also need to be on the electorial register. If you’ve moved recently or changed your name, you may need to re-register.
This needs to be done by November 26. You can register here: www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
Can I vote by post?
Many people already vote by post in every election. If this is you, then your postal votes will arrive as normal about 12 days before the election.
If you would like to vote by post – many people are saying this because 12th December is in the middle of winter – then you need to register. Again the deadline is 26 November 2019.
You can download a form here (this needs to be printed out).
