District election information

Parish election information

Register to vote

Registering to vote can be easily done online, you will need your date of birth and national insurance number and the whole process should take about 5 minutes.

Register to vote

You normally only need to register once - not for every election. You’ll need to register again if you’ve changed your name, address or nationality. 

The deadline to register to vote in these elections is 11:59pm on Monday 17 April.

Vote in person at a polling station - you will need voter ID

Most people vote in person at a polling station. We have 72 polling stations across East Hampshire, you can find out where your nearest polling station is by checking the information printed on your poll card.

Polling stations are open from 7am and close at 10pm. When you go to the polling station you will need to give your name and address to the relevant staff member who will check you are registered to vote.

The UK Government has introduced a requirement for voters to show photo ID when voting at all polling stations in the district at some elections. This will apply for the first time at the local elections on Thursday 4 May 2023.

Voter ID requirements

Can't get to the polling station on polling day?

You can apply to vote by post, or apply to vote by proxy, when you ask someone you trust to vote on your behalf.

During election time we may need to recruit temporary staff. If you are interested in working for us, please contact our Elections Team on or call 01730 234350. We will make sure your details are added to our database and you are considered for future vacancies.
