General Election: Final day to register to vote

BY: Nathan Spackman

The deadline to register to vote in the UK's upcoming general election is 11.59pm on Tuesday, November 26.

We've put together a guide including everything you need to know about registering to vote ahead of polling day on 12th December.

If you have never voted before, have moved constituency or have turned 18 recently then you will need to register if you have not done so already.

If you are eligible to vote, you can do so at anytime, but be aware there is a deadline to do so before 11:59pm on 26th November to vote in the December 12th ballot.

How do I check if I am already registered?

If you are not sure whether or not you are registered, you should check with the Vale of Glamorgan electoral registration office.

How can I register if I need to?

By visiting www.gov.uk/register-to-vote and filling out the relevant forms. Alternatively, you can register by post.

Download the forms here: www.gov.uk/government/publications/register-to-vote-if-youre-living-in-the-uk.

What about students?

If you are a student, you may be able to register to vote at both your home and term-time addresses – but you can only vote once in any election.

What if I am away on election day?

If you cannot vote in person you can ask someone to vote on your behalf, via a proxy vote.That person must be aged over 18 and be registered to vote.You can apply for a proxy vote here: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/proxy-voting-application-forms.

In certain circumstances, where you have an emergency that means you cannot get to the polling station in person, you can apply for an emergency proxy up to 5pm on the day of the election.

You can also apply to vote by post for any reason. Download and complete the form here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/apply-for-a-postal-vote.
