Liz has made up her mind who she’s backing in the General Election.

So today, she’s off to cast her vote.

Unfortunately, Liz didn’t register.

Make sure nothing stops you voting in the General Election.

You see, because Liz didn’t register to vote, there’s a sort of invisible wall stopping her from entering the polling station. Although, her dog is able to pass through it without any problems.

According to the Electoral Commission, to vote in a UK Parliamentary general election a person must be registered to vote and also:

  • be 18 years of age or over on polling day
  • be resident in the UK
  • be a British citizen, a qualifying Commonwealth citizen or a citizen of the Republic of Ireland
  • not be subject to any legal incapacity to vote
  • Additionally, the following cannot vote:

  • members of the House of Lords (although they can vote at elections to local authorities, devolved legislatures and the European Parliament)
  • EU citizens resident in the UK (although they can vote at elections to local authorities, devolved legislatures and the European Parliament)
  • anyone other than British, Irish and qualifying Commonwealth citizens
  • convicted persons detained in pursuance of their sentences (though remand prisoners, unconvicted prisoners and civil prisoners can vote if they are on the electoral register)
  • anyone found guilty within the previous five years of corrupt or illegal practices in connection with an election

Dogs can vote! Make sure your dog is registered to vote!
