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 1st December, but people can add their names throughout the year. You may register to vote if you are:
 
• Living at an address in Salford
• 16 years of age or over. However, you can only vote when you are over 18 years of age.
• A British or Commonwealth citizen
• A citizen of the Irish Republic or other European Union state not otherwise disqualified from registration
 
Why should I register to vote?
 
Voting gives you a say on important issues that affect you. Politics and decisions made by Members of Parliament and local councillors affect our lives every day. You are able to choose them.
 
Being on the register of electors can also help you if you want to obtain credit as credit reference companies and banks use the register to confirm identity and to counteract fraud.
 
The Government has recently introduced a new £80 fine for people who fail to go on the electoral register if 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 Salford Council on 0161 909 6560 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
 
It only takes a few minutes to register. You can fill in your name, address, date of birth and a few other details. You will also need your National Insurance number, which can be found on your National Insurance card, or on official paperwork such a payslips, letter about benefits or tax credits. If you have lost your National Insurance number, visit GOV.UK lost national insurance number.
