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
Fill in an Electoral registration form for someone with no fixed or permanent address on GOV.UK.
If you don't have an address you can use, contact your local Electoral Registration Office.
