The Electoral Register

Looking after your information

The Electoral Register

The Electoral Register is a list of everyone who is registered to vote in public elections and referendums.  The Register is used for electoral purposes and for other limited purposes specified in law, such as detecting crime, calling people for jury service and checking your credit rating.


The Open Register

The Open Register is an 'extract' of the Electoral Register, but it is not used for elections.  It can be bought by any person, company or organisation. 

Your name and address will be included on the Open Register unless you ask for them to be removed.  Removing your details from the Open Register does not affect your right to vote.

You can Opt out (or opt back in) of the Open Register (also known as the Edited Register) by using the form below.

You cannot use this form to register to vote or to tell us that you have moved house.
