"Get Registered" - Don't lose your vote in May's elections

Senedd and Police and Crime Commissioner elections will be held across Wales on May 6, 2021 and Cardiff Council is encouraging eligible residents across the city to make sure they are registered to vote in the polls.

This week, letters from the authority's Electoral Services team will start arriving at households asking residents to confirm details of the eligible voters in the property, and the method - in person, by post or by proxy, they have chosen to cast their vote in May.

Residents should check the information carefully and if all details are correct, there is nothing to do.  If changes need to be made, such as an individual listed no longer living at the address, residents should contact the Council by emailing  or phoning 029 2087 2087.

Any member of the household aged 14 or over not listed on the letter can register to vote at  This year's Senedd election will be the first time 16 and 17-year-olds in Wales, as well as qualifying foreign nationals, will be able to vote to elect members of the Senedd.
