Brent residents have three weeks left to register to vote

Residents in Brent have three weeks to register their vote before the deadline ends.

Residents have until April 20 to register their names in order to be able to vote for their preferred candidate during the general election on May 7.

The national Individual Electoral Registration requires people to register themselves using their national insurance number ending the old system of household registration.

Sean O’Sullivan, electoral services manager at Brent Council, said: “Changes to the registration process mean we have to verify people against their National Insurance number or other government issued identification so it takes longer to add people to the register. I would urge people not to wait until its too late, register today.”

Register online by visiting or by calling the electoral services office on 0208 937 1372.
