On this page, you can find information on registering to vote for people who are about to move house or have moved house recently.

Don't forget your furniture, your pets… or your right to vote!

If you've just moved house, you will need to register to vote again. It's incredibly important that you do, otherwise you may not be able to vote.

Now that you've installed your fridge and updated your TV licence, take a few minutes to register to vote now at your new address to make sure you don't miss out. Then you can get back to unpacking all those boxes.
