Why should I register on the register of electors?
If you are not registered at election time you will not be able to vote.
Also, credit agencies use the Register of Electors for credit reference purposes and if you are not included you may find it difficult to obtain credit, open a bank account, or get a mortgage.
It is your responsibility to register and it is an offence to fail to do so. You can be fined up to £1,000 for failing to return your annual canvass form.
