Voter registration

Voting is your democratic right as a citizen of the UK.

Local elections for town and parish councils and for Shropshire Council take place on 4th May. You may vote only if you are on the electoral register. Individual voter registration means that it is no longer the responsibility of the “head of the household” to list the names of voters. It is now down to the individual. To check if you’re on the register, send an email to elections@shropshire.gov.uk or call 0345 678 9015.

If you’re not on the register, there are a number of ways in which you can apply. For many of us, our national insurance number and our date of birth, coupled with a smartphone means we can register in less than two minutes. Just go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. If you’d rather complete a paper form, please contact 0345 678 9015 or email registration@shropshire.gov.uk.
