Electoral Registration / Elections

To be able to vote in elections you need to be included on the Council’s electoral register.

Copies of the electoral register are available to view at the Town Hall, St Annes.

Eligibility to register to vote:

In order to register to vote you must be:

  • 18 years old or over
  • a British, Commonwealth, Irish or European Union citizen and 
  • living in the Fylde Borough.

You can check if your name is on the electoral register by contacting the Council (01253 658658) or electoral@fylde.gov.uk

You can register either by completing the registration form delivered to your household each autumn, or throughout the year by contacting Electoral Services for a form on (01253) 658658 or download the Rolling Registration form by clicking the Voter Registration Form link below.

Please note that we can only accept forms electronically that have been signed by hand. To do this you must have access to a scanner.

The register is updated on a monthly basis. There is a deadline each month for when your registration form has to be in our office. The register will show all new alterations at the beginning of the next month.

Please note that there is a maximum fine of £1,000 for any false information given on a registration form.
