The electoral register is a list of the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote. If you are not on the register, you cannot vote.
Prior to October, if you wish to get yourself added to the electoral register, you can do so via the About My Vote website. The form needs to be signed so you will need access to a printer to use this site.
If you don't have access to a printer contact the Elections Office to request an application form be posted out to you.
Between 1st October 2013 and February 2014 we will carry out a canvass of all the addresses in the city and a canvass registration form will be sent to every household in Liverpool.
When you receive the form you should complete any changes and return it as soon as possible. Changes may include adding voters at your address or updating your details.
If there are no changes you can register by telephone or the internet using the details and security codes printed on your form.
The updated register will be published on 17th February 2014.
Paying Council Tax does not mean that you will be registered to vote. You must complete the form sent out to you to ensure you are registered.
Anyone can request to vote by post, instead of going to a polling station, providing you appear on the electoral register.
If you do wish to vote by post, you can request an application form below.
If you don't have access to a printer, contact us and we will post one to you.
A proxy vote means that you appoint someone to vote on your behalf if you are unable to get to the polling station on Election Day, providing you appear on the electoral register.
The full register lists the name and address of everyone who is registered to vote. It is used for law enforcement and by credit reference agencies, but only to check your name and address if you are applying for credit and other purposes specified in the law.
The edited register is available for general sale and can be used for any purpose and be bought by anyone – including for marketing purposes. You can opt out of appearing on the edited register when completing your registration form.
You can inspect the full electoral register at any time at Central Library or by appointment at Municipal Buildings. Call 225 3173 to book an appointment.
Anyone who fails to observe these conditions is committing a criminal offence and will be charged a penalty of up to £5,000.
