View or Opt Out of the Electoral Register

Viewing the Full Register

You can inspect the full electoral register at the Town Hall. Contact us to book an appointment.

  • Inspection of the register will be under supervision.

  • You can take extracts from the register, but only by hand written notes.

  • Information taken must not be used for direct marketing purposes, in accordance with the Data Protection Act, unless it has been published in the edited version.

Anyone who fails to observe these conditions is committing a criminal offence and will be charged a penalty of up to £5,000.

The Electoral Commission provides more information on elections and voting.

What is the Full Register

The full register lists the name and address of everyone who is registered to vote.  It is used for law enforcement and by credit reference agencies, but only to check your name and address if you are applying for credit and other purposes specified in the law.

What is the Open Register

The open register is available for general sale and can be used for any purpose and be bought by anyone – including for marketing purposes.
