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

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.

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