Your right to vote

The electoral register is a list of names of all those people eligible to vote. A new register is published every 1 December, but people can add their names throughout the year. You may register to vote if you are:

  • living at an address in Tameside
  • 18 years old or over during the life of the register
  • a British or Commonwealth citizen
  • a citizen of the Irish Republic or other European Union state not otherwise disqualified from registration

However, the Government has recently introduced a new £80 fine for people who fail to go on the electoral register if you are asked to do so.  I am keen to ensure that nobody forgets to register.

How do I check I am on the register?

You can call Tameside council on 0161 342 3036 and ask if you are on the register.

If I am not on the register, how do I register?

If you aren't on the electoral register, you can't vote. You can register to vote here: https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote 

The Electoral Commission has more on elections and the importance of voting.
