Benefits of registering

- Being on the register is good for your credit rating.

- You can vote in elections and referendums you are eligible for, including Local, Parliamentary and European elections.

- The electoral register is used to call people for jury service. Studies show that fewer young people and people from ethnic minorities register to vote. The result is that they are under-represented in the legal system.

Please note that being registered for Council Tax does not automatically put you on the register.
