Registering and voting

Register to vote

You need to be on the Register of electors (voters roll) to be able to vote in elections and referendums.

Am I registered to vote?

If you are already registered to vote at your current address and are on the register of electors (voters roll) for the South Lanarkshire area you do not need to re-register.

To find out if you are registered to vote contact the Electoral Registration Officer (ERO).

The register of electors (voters roll) contains details of everyone who has registered to vote. It is used to determine who can vote at elections while the register is in force. A new register is published at least once a year, usually on or shortly before 1 December.

How to register to vote

To register you will need to provide:

  • your National Insurance number, and
  • your date of birth
