People are being asked to check that they are registered to vote, so they can take part in any future elections.

Bradford Council's Electoral Services are sending forms out across the district, asking people to respond now so that the Council can check who is eligible to vote and that the information currently on the electoral register is correct. This will also ensure that anyone not registered to vote can fill in their details so they can take part in future elections and referendums.

To respond, you can choose one of the following options:

  • Online at
  • If there are no changes, by calling the Freephone number 0800 197 9871. Security codes provided on the forms will be required if you are responding online or by the Freephone number
  • Complete and return the form in the freepost envelope provided as soon as possible.
  • Anyone who is not registered at all can go online to to complete the registration process. You  will need your National Insurance Number.

Young people aged 16 or over need to be registered, so that their details are ready for them to vote when they turn 18.

Kersten England, Bradford Council Chief Executive and Electoral Registration Officer, said: “It is so important that people are registered to vote. You have to be registered to vote to have your say in the local elections next year and any future elections. It only takes a few minutes to check the forms are correct or register to vote.”

Full details are on the form, but anyone needing help in completing it, or wanting more information on registering can contact the Electoral Services team on 01274 432287, or by email on
