The electoral register is a list of everyone who is registered to vote. There are two versions of the register:
- the electoral register
- the 'open register' (edited register)
The electoral register lists the full names and addresses of everyone registered to vote. This information is used for election purposes and law enforcement.
The 'open register' is an extract from the electoral register. It can be bought by any person, company or organisation.
It is mainly used by businesses and charities to confirm name and address details. The personal data in the register must always be processed in line with data-protection legislation.
Your name and address will be included in the 'open register' unless you ask for them to be removed.
Viewing the electoral register
The electoral register is not available to view online, however you can view the register in Ebley Mill reception. When viewing the register you can make notes but not use any digital device to take pictures.
How can I remove my details from the 'open register'?
