Electoral Register

The Electoral Register lists the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote in public elections.

The register is used for electoral purposes, such as making sure only eligible people can vote. It is also used for other limited purposes specified in law, such as:

  • detecting crime e.g. fraud
  • calling people for jury service
  • checking credit applications.

A fully revised version of the Electoral Register is published by 1 December each year.  This revision takes account of all changes notified during the annual registration canvass that takes place each autumn.

Those applying for registration under the 'rolling registration' process (between December and August each year) will be included on the notice of alteration to the register which is published on the 1st of the month following approval of their application.
