If you have not registered to vote, and want to participate in the elections you will need to do so by midnight on Tuesday 7 May.
To register to vote, go to https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote . You only need to register once – you don’t need to register separately for every election. However, you must register again if you’ve changed address, name or nationality.
You can also use the service to vote by post or by proxy. Voting by post is easy and convenient, particularly if you are unable to get to a polling station. You can download the appropriate form at the Your Vote Matters website.
Enfield Council’s Chief Executive and Returning Officer, Ian Davis, said, “It is important that people register to vote in good time. We would encourage all eligible voters to get involved in the electoral process and if you don’t think you can make it to a polling station, why not apply to vote by post? Anyone aged over 18 can apply for a postal vote, as long as you are on the electoral register and you do not need to provide a reason for doing so.”
On the day of the election, polling stations will be open from 7am until 10pm. There are 751 members of the European Parliament, known as MEPs, and of those, 73 represent the UK. London – including Enfield – is represented by 8 MEPs. To find out who your MEPs currently are, please check the European Parliament’s website.
