Voting in the UK parliamentary election

To be able to vote in the UK parliamentary election, you need to make sure you're listed on the electoral register - and you have to do this before Monday 20 April at the latest.

The electoral register is a list of everyone registered to vote. Every year, people forget to return their annual canvass form to the Electoral Registration Officer or fail to notify a change of address, losing out on their right to vote.

Don't be one of these people!
