Bins not been emptied? We do apologise, but due to changes to our waste collection services the crews are finding they are not able to make it to some properties on the right day. We are working to address this. If your bin hasn't been emptied, check our webpage to see if you live in an area we know about and, if so, please just leave your bin out. You do not need to report it to us. We are doing everything we can to return to your property in the following day or two. You can also find out more about the changes to our bin collections and check your bin day with our online calendar.
Register to vote in elections
If you want to vote in elections you need to register first.
How do I register to vote?
It is easy to register to vote:
Go to the electoral registration website
Fill in your name, address, date of birth and a few other details. You’ll also need your national insurance number, which can be found on your national insurance card, or in official paperwork such as payslips, or letters about benefits or tax credits
Look out for a confirmation to say you’re registered.
There is more information on the Your Vote Matters website.
If you are unable to register online, you can use the downloadable forms.
If your application is completed correctly, and not objected to, your details will be added to our list of new electors and we will change your details within seven weeks. We will write to confirm when your application is approved.
Do I have to register for every election?
Once you are on the register we check your details annually to see if they are correct. If nothing has changed you just need to inform us of this. You do not need to register again.
If you move house you will have to register again.
Can I register anonymously?
Yes. But only in certain circumstances. These include if you have been a victim of domestic violence. More information is available on the Electoral Commission website.
