If you are a British citizen and not already registered to vote and then please use the following link to register to vote:

https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

You will see the following information for those that live abroad:

If you live abroad

You can use this service to apply to register to vote (or to renew or update your registration) if you:

  • are a British citizen
  • left the UK within the last 15 years
  • were previously registered at an address in England, Scotland or Wales (or, in some cases, you left the UK before your 18th birthday)

You’ll need your passport details if you’re a British citizen living abroad, and want to vote in England, Scotland or Wales.

Voting if you’re registered as an overseas voter

You can vote in UK Parliament and European Parliament elections. You may be able to vote in referendums. Each referendum has different rules on who can vote in it.

You can choose to vote either by post or by proxy. You’ll be asked to make this choice when you register.

The local authority where you’re registered as an overseas voter will send you a postal or proxy vote application form by email or post.

If you’re registered in Northern Ireland you cannot vote by post.
