People in Northern Ireland can now register online to vote. Those not currently on the electoral roll will be able to input their details in a process which takes a few minutes, the chief electoral officer has said. Electronic voter registration was introduced in all other parts of the UK in 2014. Up to now in Northern Ireland, paper forms had to be filled out and returned to a local election office.
Speaking on BBC Radio Ulster’s morning show, Northern Ireland’s chief electoral officer Virginia McVea said: “You can go online on any device and in just a few minutes you can be registered.
“The paper version is still there so people don’t need to worry, they can do that way if they choose. But now you don’t have to download or collect a form.”
