Register to Vote

Why should I register?

You must be registered in order to vote or stand as a candidate for a House of Keys or Local Authority election.

Why should I vote?

How can we influence the choices that Members of the House of Keys, Commissioners or Councillors make when they consider new laws, policies or practices?

The starting point is to ensure that the decision-makers are the people who share your point of view or who you think will best represent you. You can only do this if you vote.

How do I register to vote?

If you are not already on the register you can apply to be added to the register by visiting the Electoral Register page on Online Services and following the instructions on the web page.

You can register to vote if you:

  • have been resident for at least 12 months
  • are 16 years of age or older
  • are not subject to any legal incapacity to vote

If you are away at university you can still register as your Manx address is considered your usual address.
