Make sure you are registered to vote

In order to vote, you must be on the electoral register. With the deadline to register to vote fast approaching, we are urging people who have not registered at their current address to make sure they are registered in time.

The deadline to register to vote in the next elections is by midnight on April 14.

Voters will have a range of options for casting your ballot – in person, by post or by appointing someone you trust to vote in your place, known as a proxy vote
