UK general election - Thursday 8 June

Voters living in the UK

The deadline to register to vote was Monday 22 May. It is now too late to register to vote at the UK general election on 8 June.

If you registered to vote before the deadline, your local electoral registration office will contact you to let you know when you are registered or if they have any questions.

Voters living overseas

The deadline to register as an overseas voter for the UK general election on Thursday 8 June has now passed. If you didn’t register and were not already registered, it is now too late.

If you were already registered and have been asked to renew your registration and haven’t yet done so, make sure you renew as soon as possible or you may not be able to vote.

If you have registered as an overseas voter but haven’t yet applied for a proxy vote (where you can nominate someone in the UK to vote on your behalf), you should do this now
