Register of Electors
What is the Register of Electors?
The Register of Electors contains the names and addresses of
everyone living in the district who are eligible to vote (British,
Commonwealth and citizens of other European Union Members States).
In order to vote your name must be on the Register of Electors for
the area in which you live.
The information contained within the Register can only be used
for certain purposes such as elections, law enforcement and credit
How can I register?
We carry out an annual audit in the autumn of each year, at
which time a form is sent to every household for them to check the
details and update if needed. A new Register is then published
In addition if you move house during the year, are coming up to
18 years old, or you are just not on the Register for whatever
reason it is important for you to provide us with your information
so that you can vote. To do this you need to complete a Voter
Registration Form. The Register is updated throughout the year on a
monthly basis. However applications are suspended between September
and December while the annual audit takes place.
Within 2 to 6 weeks of the Electoral Registration Officer
receiving your application your name will be added to the Register
of Electors. We will write and confirm that your name has been
added to the Register.
During an election period there are rules about additional names
being added to the Register.
