Register to vote 


If you have moved house recently, you will need to register at your new address using the link above - paying council tax does not mean you are automatically registered to vote.

You can also register to vote when you turn 16, even though you are not eligible to vote until you are 18.

If you would prefer to contact us by telephone, the number is 0191 278 7878 and we can either register you over the phone or post a form to you.

In order to register you will need your national insurance number so please make sure you have this to hand.

If you can't give your national insurance number you will be asked to say why, and we may contact you to ask for further information in order to confirm your identity.

You will receive a letter to confirm you are registered to vote.
