Service and Armed Force voters

Service/Armed Forces personnel and their husbands, wives or civil partners living in the UK have the option of making a  service declarationor can choose to  register to vote in the traditional way.

You must renew your Service declaration every five years.

You can register at the address where you would be living if you were not in the Services or for an address where you have lived in the past. You need to send your Service declaration to the Electoral Registration Office for the address where you wish to be registered, if you are unsure of the address you need to be registered to, please  contact us.

Service/Armed Forces voters and their husbands, wives or civil partners can vote in person or can opt to vote by post or proxy. Postal votes are only sent out a week before election day. If you are living abroad, it may be better to appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf as there may not be enough time for your postal vote to reach you and be sent back before voting closes.

For further information see the  'About my vote' website
