Electoral registration

An overview of the Voter's Roll and How to Register.

Statement from Glasgow City's Electoral Registration Officer - June 24, 2014

( British Sign Language version available)

Local Authorities are responsible for running elections in their area. Part of this process involves creating a list of all eligible voters who have registered to vote within each Local Authority Boundary. This list is called the Register of Electors or Electoral Register but is more commonly referred to as the Voters Roll.

Once compiled the register allows the Electoral Registration Officer to send out Polling Cards prior to Polling Day as well as provide lists of eligible voters to Polling Stations.

The candidates you vote for in a particular election will depend on the ward or constituency you are registered in but you do not need to attend a Polling Station to make your vote. You can vote by post or have someone else vote on your behalf if you are unable.

You can view instructions on how to fill in all Electoral Registration forms as well as download the forms for use at home.
