"Full information about the election and how to vote is available on our website, including guidance for voters with disabilities". The general election takes place on June 8, when the Island will choose a new member of parliament after Andrew Turner stood down in disgrace following an outcry over comments made about homosexuality. The deadline to register to vote is midnight on Monday (22nd May).

More than one million applications to register to vote have been made since Theresa May called the election in April - with nearly a third from people aged under 25, and just 1% from people over 75. Anyone who knows they will be unable to go to their polling station on election day can apply for a postal vote or a proxy vote, which means appointing someone else to vote on their behalf at their usual polling station.

To be able to register, residents must have their National Insurance number to hand. Make sure you keep in mind to sign and put your date of birth on your postal vote statement and include it with your postal vote when returning it.

This online service is for England, Wales and Scotland only - if you live in Northern Ireland, you will need to register using a different form.
