The Open Register

The Open Register is an extract of the Electoral Register, but it is not used for elections. It can be bought by any person, company or organisation.

For example, it is used by businesses and charities to confirm name and address details. 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. If you would like your details removed from the Open Register, or would like to check that they are not included please contact the Elections Team on
