Register to vote

You can register to vote if you are:

  • 16 or older (although you can’t vote at present until you’re 18)
  • a British Citizen
  • an Irish, qualifying Commonwealth, or European Union citizen living in the UK

The way everyone registers to vote in Scotland has changed. All voters now need to register individually, rather than as a household. More information on the changes is available on the your vote matters website.

You can register online on the register to vote website. You will need your national insurance number.

Alternatively, contact the electoral registration officer in Angus.

To vote in the UK Parliamentary Election on Thursday 7 May 2015, you must register by Monday 20 April. For more information visit our UK Parliamentary Election pages.
