The electoral register is a list of the names and addresses of everyone who is entitled to vote within the borough of Slough. 

Why should I register?

  • The information is required by law.
  • If you are not registered, you cannot vote in elections.
  • You may find it difficult to get credit, loans, a mortgage or bank account as the register is used by credit reference agencies.

  • You must be resident in the electoral area.
  • You must be a British, Irish, Commonwealth citizen or citizen of a European Union country.
  • You must be 18 or over, or must attain the age of 18 during the life of the registering period.
