Register to vote

Hounslow Council has published the formal Notice of Election for all 60 seats on the council, which will be held on Thursday 3 May.

Voters will be able to have their say on who represents them at a local level – as the decisions these councillors make over the next four years will shape the future of services across the borough – but only if they are registered to vote.

You can register to vote online at  www.gov.uk/register-to-vote - it only takes a few minutes.

The deadline for registering to vote at the upcoming local election is midnight on Tuesday 17 April.

All United Kingdom, European Union and Commonwealth citizens are eligible to vote in the Local Election, as long as they are 18 or over on polling day.

If you have moved recently, you should have re-registered at your new address.
