Electoral Registration Office


Individual Electoral Registration

From 19 September 2014 the way in which you register to vote has changed and anyone registering to vote will have to follow the new procedure.

Individual Electoral Registration (IER) is replacing household registration and requires each individual to register themselves and provide their National Insurance number and date of birth. These details are checked with national databases and other council records to verify identity before an individual can be added to the Register.

This provides a more accurate Register of Electors and offers a more convenient way to register as you can now apply online .

Glasgow City Council's Electoral Registration Officer has written to all electors and households in Glasgow. Some people need to provide further information to remain on the register.  Look out for your letter it will explain what you need to do, details of the letters are available here.

Postal and Proxy Voters

If you have an absent vote in place, either a postal or proxy vote, and you have received an Invitation to Register you must respond to this request.  If you do not provide the requested information you will lose your absent vote.  This means you will have to vote in person at the General Election on 7 May 2015.
