Register to vote online - Gildernew
Sinn Féin MLA Colm Gildernew has encouraged people to register to vote through the new online registration service.
Colm Gildernew said:
“Online voter registration has been available from the Electoral Office for people in the north from 18 June.
“This new system makes democracy more accessible to all people and enables them to exercise their right to vote.
“This will also address the democratic deficit which exists here due to tens of thousands of people being removed from the electoral register over recent years, including 60’000 in Belfast alone.
“The Electoral Office should also reinstate the schools registration programme which has the potential to get 10,000 young people every year on to the electoral register.
“I would encourage people to use the online registration service on your smartphone, tablet or PC, it is available at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote and the process only takes five minutes.”
