Anyone 16 or over will be able to vote in the local government elections this year for the first time, after Senedd Members voted in 2020 to change the rules in Wales.
In order to vote, you have to make sure you are on the electoral register held by the local authority where you live.
It’s very straightforward – simply visit this website to sign up before 14th April.
Just about everyone who lives in Wales – wherever you were born - can register to vote. This includes anyone from other countries around the world who have permission to live here.
Register to vote by 14th April 2022. If you don’t register in time, you won’t get to vote in the local elections on 5th May, and you won’t have your say in the future of your community.
Head over to the Gov.uk website to register to vote today. It only takes five minutes!
