Armed Forces

People working in the Armed Forces and their spouses or civil partners have the choice of registering as a service voter or as an ordinary voter.

Successful applicants will be notified in writing and can vote by post or in person at the time of an election if they are in the local area.

Your registration will last for five years and you will be sent a reminder two or three months before it expires. We recommend that you provide us with your contact details if you move postings so that our reminder gets to you.

Register to vote as a member of the Armed Forces on GOV.UK

If you are likely to be posted away from home for a long period of time, you should consider voting by post or getting someone else to vote on your behalf.
