As you are probably aware individuals are not able to vote in the UK until they are 18 years old. However, if you are 16 or over you can register to vote now to ensure that you are placed on the electoral roll and vote as soon as you are old enough to.
By visiting the About My Vote website you can print out a registration form. It only takes a few minutes to complete and sending it off to your local electoral registration office will ensure that you are sent a polling card for any election that is held after your 18th birthday.
Voting is a great opportunity for you to have your say on issues that affect you. Why not register to vote now?
