Register to vote / change of name

 

The registration system changed in June 2014. The new system is called Individual Electoral Registration (IER).

 

How to register:

 

  • You can now register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
  • Everyone is now responsible for registering themselves
  • You need to provide a few more details to register including your National Insurance Number* and date of birth

 

If you need to register, getting married or changing your name visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

To be registered you must be British, Irish or from another Commonwealth Country or a from a Member State of the EU - to check whether your nationality qualifies - see the list of countries below.
 
*If you are retired and cannot find your National Insurance Number please refer to the letter issued each year by the Department for Work and Pensions in February or March telling you how much your pension will be.
 
There are also circumstances when you can register anonymously - to find out more about registration in these circumstances - visit the Frequently asked Questions section of our site "anonymous registration".
 
You have the right to object to another person's application to be added to the register, or to object to an existing entry in the Register of Electors for South Staffordshire, as long as you are also on the electoral register. (The full version of the register is available for inspection, under supervision, at the Council Offices).
For further information on the objections procedure and a form to make an objection, please see link below.
