Electoral Registration

You must register to be able to vote.

The Electoral Register

Council registration officers keep two electoral registers complied using information from residents – the electoral register and the open register, which is also known as the edited register.

The electoral register lists the names and addresses of everyone who is registered

to vote in public elections.

The register is used to make sure only eligible people can vote and also for detecting fraud, calling people for jury service and checking credit applications.

The Open Register

The open register is an extract of the electoral register, but is not used for elections. It can be bought by any person, company or organisation, for example by businesses and charities to confirm name and address details.

Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask for them to be removed by contacting the electoral registration office below.

Removing your details from the open register does not affect your right to vote.

How do I join or get removed from the open register?

Visit the Gov.UK Register to Vote website and click the checkbox if you do not want your name and address listed on the open register.

You can also change your opt-out preference at any time by making a request to local electoral registration staff with your full name, address and an indication of whether you wish to be included in or omitted from the open register.
