In Southwark, you can register to vote at age 16.

However, you must be 18 or over to vote in a general election and a British Citizen.

You can vote in Southwark if you are a resident of one of the borough’s three constituencies: Camberwell & PeckhamDulwich and West Norwood, and Bermondsey & Old Southwark

When you register to vote, you will be asked to provide some of you personal details so that you can be identified and then added to the electoral register.

It’s a good idea to prepare your personal information before registering if you’re unsure of any of the details.

When you apply, you will be asked for the following information:

Which UK country you live in, i.e. England, Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales.
Your nationality (or nationalities if you have dual citizenship with another country)
Your date of birth
Your full name, including your middle names
Your national insurance number
You full address and postcode
Your full address and postcode of a second address (if applicable, if you don’t have a second address you don’t need to add any information

Open register

You will also be asked if you would like your details to be included on the open register. The open register is an extract of the electoral register, but is not used for elections. It can be bought by any person, company or organisation.

Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask for them to be removed. Removing your details from the open register does not affect your right to vote.

You can choose whether or not you want to be included on this list. If you have signed up, or think you have signed up by mistake, and would like your name to be removed you can send an email request to Southwark Electoral services here

You must include your name and address in the request.

To vote in person you will need to go to your polling station which is on your polling card. You do not need to bring anything with you when you go to cast your vote.

Proxy vote

If you are unable to vote in person you can get someone to vote for you, and tell them who to vote for. This is called a proxy vote. Find out more about proxy votes here

Once you’ve registered to vote, you do not need to do anything else until polling day.

You will receive a polling card in the post telling you which polling station you need to go to cast your vote, as well as information on the voting time and date. You must only attend the polling station shown on your card as you will not be registered at another station. 

You do not need to bring your polling card with you to vote.

You do not currently need your passport, drivers licence or other ID documents to cast your vote.
