Voter registration

How do I register to vote?

To be able to vote, your name must be on the Register of Electors

Register to vote on the GOV.UK website

All new registration applications must be done individually.

What do I do if my details have changed?

You need to register again if you've changed address, name or nationality since you last registered.

How do I know if I'm on the electoral register?

You can check if you are on the register by emailing elections@pendle.gov.uk or by ringing them on 01282 661662.

The Annual Electoral Registration form

Every year, all householders are sent an Annual Electoral Registration form which you have to complete.

The electoral register and the open register

When you apply to become registered we will also ask you whether you want to have your details excluded from the open register.

You can email elections@pendle.gov.uk at any time to ask us to remove your details from the open register. You will need to tell us your name and address and ask for your details to be excluded.

Exclusion from the open register will not affect your voting rights or credit status.
