Register to vote reminder for residents

Residents are reminded that they need to be on the electoral register if they wish to vote in the general election which will take place on Thursday, 8 June.

Over the last two years, there have been a number of elections taking place within the East Riding – the Parliamentary, local and town and parish elections took place in 2015 while last year elections for the Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner and the EU Referendum took place.

People who voted in those elections and whose circumstances have not changed, are likely to be eligible to vote on 8 June but anyone who is not on the electoral roll and would like to vote needs to complete a registration form before midnight on Monday, 22 May.

Registration is quick and easy and can be done online. An electoral registration form can be found and completed online via East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s website – or at

Residents can also register by contacting the council’s electoral services on (01482) 393300 or by emailing

People who have already registered and wish to vote by post can apply for an application form now by going to

The closing date for applications for postal votes is 5pm on Tuesday, 23 May.
