Your vote matters - don’t lose it! Power NI team up with The Electoral Commission

Monday, April 04, 2016

The Northern Ireland Assembly election is coming on the 5 May 2016 and it is important that you have registered to vote before 18 April.

The Electoral Commission has joined forces with Power NI to encourage would-be voters to make sure that they are registered to vote before the deadline.

Ann Watt, Head of the Electoral Commission in Northern Ireland. "If you’re not registered then you won’t be able to have your say at the Assembly election. There are only two weeks left until the registration deadline so it’s important to act now or you could lose your vote."

To register you’ll need to provide your National Insurance number, date of birth and address.  

You can download a registration form from aboutmyvote.co.uk. Completed application forms must be returned to your local area electoral office before midnight on 18th April 2016.
