How to Register and Vote
On Thursday June 8th, There’ll be a General Election, to decide a new government for the United Kingdom. Voting is an extremely important part of Democracy, but if you don’t register to vote before Midnight, on 22nd of May, you may lose your chance.
If you’ve already received a poll card in your name for this election, then you’re already registered. If you are at all unsure however, you can register, or check your details at https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
You should receive your poll card in the post before the election, informing you of where your polling station is. On the day of the election, you can go to your designated polling station at any time between 7am and 10pm to vote.
While the General Election is such an important event for everyone in the country, it is by no means the only way to take part. You can also vote in local elections that happen more frequently, to have a say in what happens in your area.
