Our friends at Birmingham City Council have asked us to put out some info about the electoral roll (it’s important, not dull; read on!)
Birmingham’s Election’s Office Needs You to Register
If you haven’t registered to vote in Birmingham or have moved house recently and need to re-register, please consider doing this now.
This will ensure you can vote and have your say in referendums, national and local elections. If you are a British, or a Commonwealth or Republic of Ireland citizen you are entitled to register to vote in all elections in Britain. Citizens of European Union states are entitled to register to vote in local and European elections.
The way you register changed in June 2014. The new system means:-
- You are responsible for registering yourself
- You can now register online
- You will need to provide details such as your date of birth and National Insurance Number in order to register
All you need to do is click on the following link and input your details:-
If you don’t register, you won’t have your chance to vote and have your say on who represents you.
Not appearing on the register may affect your credit rating for things like mobile phones, loans and mortgages as credit reference agencies use the register as part of their checks.
After submitting your application, if you are eligible you will receive confirmation from Birmingham’s Election’s Office to say you are registered.
