The electoral register

There are two versions of the electoral register and they are usually published once a year:

  • the full register and;
  • the edited (open) register

Updates to both versions of the register are made on a rolling monthly basis throughout the year. This is called the rolling register.

The full register

The full register lists everyone who is entitled to vote. Only certain people and organisations can have copies of the full register and they can only use it for specific purposes. This may include organisations such as elections, law enforcement and credit referencing.

The edited (open) register

The edited register leaves out the names and address of people who have asked to opt out. Opting out will mean details will not be passed on to third parties and may prevent junk mail.

You can use the form below to opt-out of the edited register.
