Why should I register
- If you don't register you can't vote!
- Being able to vote gives you a say on who represents you in your local council, in the UK Parliament and Europe
- Being registered to vote gives you the opportunity to have a say on important issues that affect you. That includes decisions made by elected representatives about everything from roads and recycling to education and climate change
- If an election is called at short notice you'll be able to have your say
- If you're a student living away from home, you can register at your main home and at your college, allowing you to vote wherever you are at the time of an election
- Many people regard the right to vote and be involved in how the country they live in is governed as a fundamental right. Registering to vote supports this view and those who have fought to achieve it
- It can affect your ability to get loans and mobile phone contracts
