Important Information for Service Voters

Earlier this year, as part of the move to Individual Electoral Registration (IER), a new system of online registration was introduced. This means that if you're based in the UK and unlikely to change address or be posted overseas in the next few months, you can register to vote online at

There's also an option to register as a 'Service Voter'. This allows you to be registered for five years at a fixed address in England, Scotland or Wales even if you move around. This is particularly handy if you are already based overseas or think that you may be posted abroad in the next few months. If you're part of a Service family - your husband, wife or civil partner can also register as a 'Service Voter'.




BFBS is spreading real love this Christmas with the tale of presenter Charlene Guy and her best friend, Hal the Penguin. 

 They share a studio and go everywhere together, and though Hal is passionate about being a broadcaster for BFBS, he longs to be in the Armed Forces.

Saluting is a challenge with his flippers, but Hal’s determined to perfect his drill and marching skills, so Charlene’s giving him the future he’s been dreaming of.

He’s been recruited by the Penguin Reserves, and now they’re going to surprise him with the ultimate present...

Hal Stewart, who is never knowingly upstaged, said: “My acting style has been described as very 'method' so I really got into the role. By that I mean I didn't allow the wife to put the heating on for three months and only ate fish.”
Share real love with BFBS this Christmas
