You need to be on the Electoral Register with your up-to-date details in order to vote.
Have Your Details Recently Changed?
Between October and February next year we will carry out a canvass of all households in Eastbourne. You will receive a registration form which you should complete and return as soon as possible.
During the rest of the year the register is updated monthly. If you have changed address since completing your annual canvass form, or your name does not appear on the register or you have moved, download a voter registration form from About My Vote website.
