Elections and Electoral Registration

A local government by-election is due to take place in Knutton ward on 25th November 2021. Further information on this can be found by clicking here.

The Council's elections office is responsible for organising all elections held in Newcastle-under-Lyme along with maintaining an up-to-date and accurate Register of Electors.

If you are not already registered to vote you can register online at GOV.UK and fill in your name, address, date of birth and a few other details. You will be asked for your National Insurance number which can be found on your National Insurance card or in official paperwork such as payslips, letters about benefits or tax credits - but you can register if you do not have a number.

Look out for confirmation to say that you are registered.

The Move to All-Out Elections

A special meeting of the Borough Council took place on 25 November 2015. At this meeting, the Council decided to move to all‑out (or whole council) elections from May 2018.
