Registering to vote

How to register to vote

From 19 September 2014, the way you register to vote has changed. 

You must now register as an individual rather than filling in one form for each household. 

You can also register to vote online.

Your National Insurance number is required to register to vote so please have this to hand before you start.   

If you prefer, you can contact the Electoral Registration Office (Lothian Valuation Joint Board) by telephone:

  • 0131 344 2500

You can also download and complete the Invitation to Register form then send it to the Electoral Registration Office by post:

More information on registering to vote can be found on the Electoral Commission website:
