The electoral register lists the name and address of everyone who is registered to vote.
There are two versions of the register: the full 'electoral' register and the 'open' register.
Both registers are held at the Guildhall and can be inspected by anyone. You must make an appointment in advance to view the full electoral register.
The full electoral register
The full register is used for electoral purposes, such as making sure only eligible people can vote, as well as other limited purposes such as preventing and detecting crime, and checking credit and loan applications.
The open register
The open register is an extract of the full register that can be bought by any person, company or organisation. Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask for them to be removed.

Entries on the register or applications for registration (except anonymous registrations) can be objected to by any elector who is registered in that area.
