Can I vote in 2016 and how do I register?

To vote Green in May 2016 or in any by-elections before then, you need to make sure that you are registered to vote.

***For the first time, voters in England are now able to register to vote online***

To register online go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

It only takes just a few minutes to make sure you can have your say!

To register online you need your National Insurance number (which can be found on your pay slips or on your P60). Click here to find out what to do if you don't receive pay slips and have lost your NI number.

You may also need your passport to register online if you’re living abroad. There are separate registration services for public servants who are likely to be posted overseas.

Can I vote in the May 2016 London elections? 

You can vote in the May 2016 London elections if you have registered to vote and you are:

  • 18 or over on election day. 16 and 17 year olds can register with their local borough and they will be added to the electoral register as soon as they become 18.
  • British or a Commonweath, Irish Republic or EU citizens living in the UK.
  • Registered to vote in London by 18 April 2016.

Being registered with the council for services such as paying council tax will not automatically include you on the electoral register. Although both are held by the council, the two lists are separate.
