Who can vote?

If you know you can vote, or can vote in the next year or two, see why and how here.

Who can register to vote?

To be eligible to register to vote, a person must be:

•    aged 16 years or over (but you cannot vote until your eighteenth birthday), and
•    a British, Irish, EU or qualifying Commonwealth citizen

Young people

Labour has committed to giving the vote to 16 and 17 year olds, as with the Scottish Referendum.

European Union

Citizens of most EU countries* cannot vote in general elections, but can vote at local government elections.

Re-elect Patrick Kadewere in Huntingdon North on May 5th!

They can also vote at European Parliamentary elections if they fill in a form stating that they wish to vote in the UK and not in their home country.

So Polish, Lithuanian, Latvian, Spanish, Portuguese and other EU citizens who live in Huntingdonshire can all vote in local elections and in EU elections if they choose.

They can also vote for the Police and Crime Commissioner. Elect Dave Baigent on May 5th!


To qualify, Commonwealth citizens must be resident in the UK and either have leave to remain in the UK or not require such leave. See list below.
