Service Voters

Members of the armed forces may register to vote at their home address just as a normal civilian elector or as a Service Voter.  Service Voters are entitled to vote in Local, Parliamentary and European Parliamentary Elections in the UK.

How do I register if I am posted overseas?

If you are overseas serving in the armed forces then you need to complete a service declaration.  If you would like an application form to register as a service voter please download the form above or alternatively contact the Electoral Registration Team.  You need to register at an address where you resided in the past or where you would live if you were not posted overseas.

How can I vote?

Service Voters may either appoint a person to vote on their behalf at the polling station or vote themselves by post.  If a postal vote is chosen, the applicant should bear in mind the length of time taken for post to travel in either direction, because the ballot paper is only issued 7 to 10 days before Polling Day.  If you are registered as a service voter you are entitled to vote in Local, Parliamentary and European Parliamentary Elections in the UK.
