When is the General Election?
On October 29, MPs approved the PM’s call for anelection to be held on December 12.
It was Mr Johnson’s fourth attempt to have Parliament agree to have an election after the Labour Party finally blocked the vote three times.
Parliament shut down from November 6.
When this happens every seat in the House of Commons becomes vacant with those wishing to remain as MPs having to stand in the forthcoming election.

How can I register to vote or find out if I’m already registered?

If you’re not sure which one you fall undersimply type in your postcode atYour Vote Matters.
It’s not currently possible to check your registration online so you’ll have to use the contact details on there to get in touch with the council.
If you discover that you’re not registered then you can sign up on theGovernment website.
You’ll be asked to provide your name, date of birth, current address, past address if you have lived somewhere else in the last 12 months, and your National Insurance number.
If you are a British citizen living abroad you will also need your passport.

If you have moved house since you last registered to vote you will need to re-register under your new address.
