Northern Ireland Assembly elections will take place on May 5, and registration time to vote is over.
The last date for voting in the elections is midnight on April 14th.
There are two ways to register:
1. You can register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. The Northern Ireland Electoral Office says this is the “fastest and easiest way to register or update your details”.
2. If you cannot register online, you can fill out a paper registration form and return it to the polling station. You can download the form from their website or call the office to have it sent to you.
Their addresses are: Northern Ireland Electoral Office, St Ann’s House, 15 Church Street, Belfast BT1 1ER.
When the Electoral Office receives your application for registration, it will check your data against data from the Department of Work and Pensions and the Business Services Organization.
If the details match, the application will be approved. If none of the details match, you will need to provide documents.
The list of accepted documents is available on the Electoral Office website. Scanned copies or photos will be accepted and can be emailed to [email protected].
If you need to submit your registration documents, you must receive them by midnight April 25.
If you request to register at a new address, you will be automatically deleted from your old address history.
The registration form is available in several languages on the Electoral Office website. Contact the office if you need this form in an alternate format.
