Household registration Forms

Electoral Canvassers are currently door knocking, at addresses, with reminder Household Enquiry Forms to addresses where a response has not been received to the original request sent in July. They all have their Redbridge Identification Badge .

We are in the process of preparing the new register which will be published on Tuesday 1 December 2015.

We have sent out Household Registration Forms to residential addresses in the borough.

Please respond as soon as possible once you receive the form. If there are no changes to the information on the form you can respond by phone or text. If you need to make changes, such as amend details and remove or add names please follow the instructions on the form and make these changes online or by post .

Where new people are added to the Household Registration Form we will then send out an Individual Electoral Registration Form for new residents to provide their Date of Birth and National Insurance number as this is the new requirement for registering, known as Individual Electoral Registration (IER). More information on IER can be found further down the page and on the Government’s website .

How Do I Register?  

You can register online on the for future elections.

For more information on Individual Electoral Registration  please go to the Your Vote Matters website.

How is the new system different?

A new voter registration system came into effect on 10 June 2014 across the whole country. The new system is called Individual Electoral Registration (IER). 

Under the old system the 'head of household' could register everyone who lived at the address on the Voter Registration form for that address.  It included information about the Edited Register, which has been on the voter registration forms since 2002. This has not changed but has been renamed - it is now known as  the 'Open Register'.

Under the new system everyone is responsible for registering themselves. You will need your national insurance number, date of birth and address to register. You can now register online via the website. A letter will be sent to acknowledge that we have your registration and if there are no queries a confirmation letter will be sent out to say you're registered. Ballot Box 2012

Already Registered?

Most people who are already registered to vote will be registered automatically on the electoral register under the new system. You do not need to do anything at this time, except tell us if you wish to be removed / or added to the open register. 

Your letter will tell you if your details are on the open register or not and this information was gathered from what you told us on your previous voter registration form. The open register is not used for elections but can be used by businesses and charities to confirm name and address details. More information on this will be in the letter sent .

If you wish to make a change to your details on the open register please email  with this request.
