How do I vote?
There are lots of resources for voters available on our sister-site About my vote.
Here you will find information about different ways to vote, as well as information about what you can vote for, upcoming elections and FAQs.
Am I registered to vote?
To find out if you are registered, you will need to contact your Electoral Registration Officer (ERO). You can find the contact details for your ERO by entering your postcode in the 'Your local area' box on About My Vote.
Information for disabled voters
All voters have a right to vote independently and in secret. Local authorities in Great Britain now have to take proactive steps to ensure that polling stations don't disadvantage disabled people. Similar arrangements apply in Northern Ireland, but they are the responsibility of the Electoral Office for Northern Ireland.
You can find out more about accessibility for voters in the accessibility section on our About my vote website.
Get involved in democracy – use participation resources
We produce resources to support your public awareness work on encouraging voter registration and providing information on elections.
These resources – for use by electoral administrators and communication teams – include advertising templates, press releases and practical materials to encourage public participation in the electoral process.
Who we are and what we do
We are an independent body set up by the UK Parliament. Our aim is integrity and public confidence in the democratic process. We regulate party and election finance and set standards for running elections; reporting on how well this is done.
