Register to vote

Registration has changed

Previously voter registration was done by household. One person in a household completed a form and entered the details of everyone who lived there. The people who were eligible were then registered to vote. Now everyone needs to register themselves individually.

Elections and voting

The next elections scheduled to take place in Hammersmith & Fulham is the General Election on Thursday 7 May 2015.

If you are registered there is a choice of ways in which you can vote.  Most people choose to vote in person, however it may be more convenient for you to vote by post or appoint a proxy to vote for you.

For more information on elections in the borough and the ways you can vote please visit our Elections and voting page.
