Help if you're on the streets: voting
You can still vote when you're homeless even if you don't have a fixed address.
Register to vote
You must register to vote before you can vote in an election.
You need proof of your identity to register. This can be your:
- National Insurance number
- birth certificate

If you haven't got a fixed address
If you haven't got a fixed address because you're sleeping in a hostel or on the street, you can still vote as long as you've registered.
You can use the address where you spend the most time, including:
- a friend's house
- a hostel
- a day centre
To use one of these as your address you need to fill in a 'Declaration of local connection' form. You can get one from your local council.
If you don't have an address you can use, contact your local Electoral Registration Office.
