Remember to Register in Time to Vote

Published: 06/11/2019

Over the last few months households in Flintshire will have received a form asking residents to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register for that address is correct. This has been done as part of our Annual Canvass of households. 

To vote at the upcoming General Election you must be registered. Most residents have already responded to the Annual Canvass. If you have not - simply check your form and if your details are unchanged you can reply by free phone, internet or by text. If your details have changed you can update this information by visiting www.registerbyinternet.com/flintshire or, alternatively, post the form back to us.  

If you are not currently registered to vote we can send you information explaining how to do this, or you can submit an application to register online at you can register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote, contact the Elections Team on the number below or we can send you a form.  You must register by Tuesday, 26 November in order to vote at this election.

Colin Everett, Electoral Registration Officer at Flintshire said:

“It is important that people are able to vote in local, regional and national elections. The Annual Canvass keeps the electoral register up to date.

 “Following the announcement of a General Election to be held on 12 December our Elections Team have seen an increase in enquiries from residents wanting to check if they are registered to vote.  

“The Elections Team are able to quickly assist residents with their enquiries. However, if you have already responded to the Annual Canvass to confirm or update your details and you have registered individually by providing your date of birth and National Insurance Number (if not already registered) then there is no need re-register. Please only contact us if you still need to register.”

Residents are asked to return their forms by Tuesday, 26 November and anyone who needs further advice and assistance can contact the Elections Team at 01352 702412 or by email: register@flintshire.gov.uk
