There’s a stack of good reasons why you might not be registered to vote in the general election. Laziness is not one of them. To vote in any UK elections, you have to be on the electoral register. It’s easy to register – you can fill in your details on the AboutMyVote website. Then you print the form, sign it, and send it to your local electoral registration office:

Across the world people have died fighting for the right to vote and be part of a democracy. By registering to vote you’ll be showing that you think that right is important. Less than 100 years ago, people in Britain were killed during their struggles to get the vote for women. Today, many people across the world are still denied the right to vote.
If you don’t register, you can’t vote! It’s as simple as that. If you don’t vote, you automatically lose the right to moan and grizzle about anything the next government does.
