Electoral Register (sometimes called Electoral Roll)

A new Electoral Register was published on 1 December 2014.

There are two versions of the Register of Electors: The Full register and an The Open register.

  • The full register is used for certain lawful purposes such as elections, law enforcement, calling people for jury service and checking credit applications
  • The open register is an extract of the electoral register, but 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.  
  • To remove your name from the open register simply tick the relevant box on the paper version of the registration form or the opt out box on the online registration and your details will be shown on the full register only. You can also email your request to electoral services.

How do I check I am on the register?

There are two versions of the register so checking the register depends on whether or not you have chosen to have your name on the edited register.

  • If you have requested that your name be included on the open register you can check that your name is listed at any Redbridge library. Visit our Redbridge i Libraries pages
  • if you have chosen to be excluded from the open register then you can only confirm you are registered by checking the full register at Queen Victoria House.

When is the Register updated?
