Why should I register?
Registering to vote gives you a say on important issues that affect you. If you are not on the Electoral Register, you can't vote. By voting you are expressing your choice about your elected representatives for local, national and European government. Registering to vote does not mean you have to vote, it just means you can if you want to.
If you are not on the Electoral Register you may have difficulty in obtaining credit which could impact on applications for mortgages, credit cards, mobile phones, etc.
