The electoral register
There are two versions of the electoral register:
- full version – this lists everyone entitled to vote and can only be viewed by booking an appointment
- open version – you can ask that your details are not published on this version of the electoral register. Anyone can view it at our offices or libraries. Commercial organisations can also buy a copy and use it for marketing purposes
Your name and address will be included in 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 ask to be removed by contacting us.
