Register to vote

Registering to vote has never been easier. If you are a British, Irish or Commonwealth citizen or a citizen of another European Union State, aged 17 or over and are resident in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea for at least six months of the year then visit GOV.UK to register. The form is simple to complete - fill in your name, address, date of birth and a few other details. You will need your National Insurance number if you have one.

Why should I register?

Your vote matters, make sure it counts. If you don’t register to vote you won’t get the chance to have a say on who represents you. Some people also register to vote because they want to apply for credit. This is because credit reference agencies use the register to check where someone lives when they apply for credit in order to prevent fraud.

Not only will you not be able to have a say at future elections and some referendums, but if you don’t respond to requests for information from us you could be at risk of getting fined £80.
