What about the right to vote?

Posted in

Most residents in Northern Ireland are entitled to register to be able to vote at elections. You are required by law to register, regardless of whether or not you intend to vote and must register at the address he or she is resident, and be in Northern Ireland for at least 3 months.

Applications forms can be obtained from the website or by contacting the Electoral Office

The registration form is available in a range of languages. The electoral office also has a ‘Language Line telephone interpreting services  should you wish to speak  in a language other than English.

Should you require an electoral card, an application form can be forwarded on request.
