You can register to vote online at before the registration deadline on 26 November. It only takes a few minutes to complete the application.

Those who aren’t able to get to their polling station on 12 December can arrange either a postal or proxy vote – full details are online at

On election day, 12 December 2019, polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm.
