Londoners: check that you’re registered to vote, yeah?

Well, it’s finally here: that snap general election that everyone’s been so desperate for. The UK goes to the polls on December 12 – and if you’re lucky enough to have a vote, you really don’t want to lose it.

Nearly 10 million people across the country are missing from the electoral roll, according to the Electoral Reform Society. If you’re one of them, you have until Tuesday November 26 to make sure you’ll be able to make your voice heard when polls open in December.

Whether you’re registering for the first time or updating your address after moving house, it only takes a few minutes. All you need to do is head to the government’s voting registration website. Make sure you have your National Insurance number and address details (and, if you’re a British citizen currently living abroad, your passport details), fill in the form and you’re good to go.

Do it now and tell your friends. Bang: democracy!
