Important Information for Service Voters


IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR SERVICE VOTERS

Earlier this year, as part of the move to Individual Electoral Registration (IER), a new system of online registration was introduced. This means that if you're based in the UK and unlikely to change address or be posted overseas in the next few months, you can register to vote online at


There's also an option to register as a 'Service Voter'. This allows you to be registered for five years at a fixed address in England, Scotland or Wales even if you move around. This is particularly handy if you are already based overseas or think that you may be posted abroad in the next few months. If you're part of a Service family - your husband, wife or civil partner can also register as a 'Service Voter'.
