If you apply after that you won’t be able to cast your vote on 4 July 2024.

Registering takes about five minutes online, or you can fill in a paper form.

Don’t forget you now need photo identification to vote. This can be a number of things, including a passport or driving licence – go to the Electoral Commission website for a full list.

If you don’t have ID you can apply for a Voter Authority Certificate up until 5pm on 26 June 2024.
