General election - what you need to know

A General Election will take place on on Thursday 4 July 2024. Here's everything you need to know including details about how to register to vote, voting by post, how to vote on the day and more.

Register to Vote

To have your say, you need to be registered to vote by Tuesday 18 June.

If you’ve never registered before, or if you’ve moved house, or changed your name recently, you can register here:

Register for a postal vote

If you cannot vote on the day or prefer to send your vote by post, you need to register for a postal vote by Wednesday 19 June at 5pm - please note that postal votes will be issued from Monday 24th June so if you are going to be away a Proxy vote will be a better option.

You must already be registered to vote before you can apply at

Photo ID

You must also take an acceptable form of photo ID, e.g. a passport, driver’s licence or concessionary bus pass. Your photo ID does not need to be in date if it still looks like you, but it must be the original and be in the same name you are registered to vote in.

You can find the full list of acceptable ID on your poll card and here.

If you don’t have any Photo ID, you can apply for a free voter authority certificate (VAC) here.

Voting at a polling station

Your polling card will have information about voting and your polling station. Make sure you check the details as your polling station may have changed.

The result of the General Election will be declared on Friday 5 July 2024 here -
