Re-registering to vote

    My husband and I have lived in rented accommodation for the last 10 years and have moved around quite a bit, because of this we are both registered to vote at our parents addresses and go home to our constituencies to vote. I've been registered since I turned 18, however just before Christmas I received a letter to say I was removed from the register at this address as they where made aware I no longer live there. Seemingly my dad spoke with someone carrying out the census and that's how it happened but I didn't think the census data would be used in that manner?? Anyway, just wondering do I need to re register entirely again or can I be just added back once I confirm my address?? As it happens I am moving back to my parents address with husband and baby in tow and so will actually need to be registered again at the original address.

    Thanks in advance

    You can check the register of electors here to confirm that your name has been removed.

    If it has been removed, then as soon as you become resident in the place that you wish to be registered - i.e. when you move back to your parents' house - then fill out Form RFA2 and send it off to the County Council.

    Do so quickly - the draft register is published in November each year and confirmed in February.
