The Electoral Commission's AboutMyVote website has been revamped to help busy people to register quickly.
You fill in your postcode and when you download a form, the address to send it to is already there on the form.
UPDATE MARCH 2010: A special voter registration form is being distributed for your exclusive use, if you are likely to be serving in Afghanistan at the time of the General Election, which could well be on 6th May. Details through your unit. BAFF Members and BAFF Military Supporters are welcome to consult us in case of difficulty.
- AboutMyVote home page. Whether you are a UK resident, member of the armed forces, recent home mover, student, or overseas voter you will find what you need on this page.
- Regular forces personnel or their partners can go straight to Member of the Armed Forces (or husband, wife or civil partner). Explains your choice of registering to vote either as a Service Voter, or as an ordinary voter, with links to the registration form for either option. There are also links to special Armed Forces versions of the application forms for a Postal Vote or Proxy Vote, if required.
- Advice and assistance is also available from the local council for the area in which you intend to vote. Many councils have specific information on their website for 'Service Voters'.
