Registering to vote is easy and will take about five minutes.

To register, you need your national insurance number and address. Every UK resident with the right to work is issued with a national insurance number at age 16. You can find the number on your national insurance card, or on a payslip from your employer.

After you’ve registered, your name and address will appear on the electoral register.

If you’re not sure if you’ve already registered, you can contact Electoral Services at 0161 234 1212 or However, you can simply register again if you can’t remember, and there won’t be an issue.

You’ll already need to be registered to vote before applying for a postal vote. To register for a postal vote, fill in a paper form and send back to
