A recent article in the Guardian suggested there are about 3.5 million voters who are not on the electoral register. If you are not registered you cannot vote in local or national elections.If you are unsure whether you are registered, here is how to check.
What you'll need: 
A computer with internet access
An email address or telephone
Your postcode
In order to find out if you are registered go to the website
Select 'Am I registered to vote in the UK?'. You can find the link at the bottom of this article.
Input your postcode into the box and enter. This will give you the contact details of your local Electoral Registration Officer. You can email, write or telephone to find out if you are registered.
If you are a British citizen, resident in the UK and over 18 years of age and are unsure if you are registered to vote, then check.
Do not leave it until the next election to check if you are registered.
Not being on the elctoral roll can affect your credit rating
