    In order to vote in the general election on 8 June, you must ensure you are registered to vote by 22 May. Registering takes only a few minutes and all you need is your address and your National Insurance number. You can check if you are already registered by contacting your local Electoral Registration Office.

    If you live in Wales, click here to register.

    You can also apply to vote by post or by proxy if you’re not able to get to your polling station on the day.

    Parliament has produced some free resources on elections and voting, suitable for a range of age groups, including an election toolkit with which you can run a mock election.

    To encourage young adults to register, vote and engage with the democratic process, all UK ‘young voters’ currently aged 18 to 24 can book a free place on a tour of Parliament. For tour dates and to book a place, please click here. Young adults can register to vote if they are going to be 18 on or before 8 June, even if it is after the 22 May registration deadline.

    Please note that the House of Commons is politically impartial and cannot comment on government policy.
