Party registration applications ahead of the of the 2019 UK Parliamentary general election

The deadline for delivering nomination papers for the 2019 UK Parliamentary general election, which was 14 November 2019, has now passed. Therefore, it is now not possible to grant any applications to register a new political party, amend a party name, amend or add an emblem, or to add a description for use on the ballot paper at the election.

You may still apply to register a new party, or amend the existing details of a registered party, ahead of a future poll.

Application to substitute or remove a description


If we decide to grant an application to substitute or remove a description, and that decision is taken between:

  • the date of publication of the notice of election (including that date); and
  • polling day
then the change does not take effect until the day following the poll.

Please note that the notice of election will have been published before 11 November 2019 at the latest.
