Electoral Register

 

Public document

The electoral register/voters roll is a public document available for inspection which lists everyone who is entitled to vote in the district.

 

We hold two versions - the electroal register and the open register.

 

Electoral Register

 

The electoral register lists the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote in a public election. The register is used for electoral purposes and can be used for other limited purposes specified by law including detecting crime, jury service and credit applications.

 

Open Register

 

The open register is an extract of the electoral register however it is not used for elections. It can be bought be any person, company or organisation. Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask us to remove it. Removing your details from the open register does not affect your right to vote.

 

If you do NOT want to appear in this version make sure you indicate on your voter registration form or annual canvass form your desire to opt-out of appearing. You can also permanently opt-out so we do not ask you again each year.

 

We update the register monthly (click on monthly revisions timetable below). By law we also have to carry out an annual canvass. We'll hand deliver a form to your home each year during the summer/early Autumn so you can let us know whether your circumstances have changed or not.

 

However this year (2013),  the canvass will commence later - from 1st October 2013 as the publication date for the revised register will be 17 February 2014 - this will be the register in force for the European Parliamentary election in May/June 2014 - date to be determined.

 

You can then register to vote by:

 

  • returning the form in the post
  • ringing our freephone number
  • sending a text message; or
  • by registering on-line

 

Outside of this period you have to register by completing our rolling voter registration form - see below.
