The electoral register is the list of everyone who is registered to vote.
You must be on the register to vote in elections and referendums.
You are not automatically registered, even if you pay Council Tax.
Every year we print and publish an up to date copy of the Electoral Register. This year the register will be printed on October 15th.
There are two versions of the register – the full version and the edited version. Your details appear on the full version of the register, but you can choose whether or not your details appear on the edited register.
- The full register is used for elections and referendums, preventing and detecting crime and checking applications for credit.
- The edited register is available for general sale and can be used for commercial activities such as marketing.
Changes can be made to the Register during the year, subject to some basic period exceptions.
It is in your own interest to ensure your name appears on the Electoral Register.
Check if you are on the current Register by inspecting it during office hours at the Electoral Registration Office or enquire by telephone or email.
