Register to vote

Letters from Lambeth council are going out to every household in the borough about the electoral register. If there are no change to the people listed it’s still important to confirm the details –easiest online or by text using the security codes in your letter. If you don’t confirm the names will come off the register after a while. People who are British, European, Commonwealth or Irish citizens are entitled to register to vote. Being on the electoral register also helps getting credit eg a credit card.

Any people new to the property or reaching age 17 must register individually – the easiest way is online at: https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

You can register to by post – but this is a slower two stage process.

The government has tightened up the rules making it harder for many people in Lambeth – especially those who move house a lot. This year a million people only just registered in time to vote in the general election in June. Many left it too late.
