Getting added to the Register of Electors

A system of rolling registration is in operation which allows regular  updates to be made . Both household and individual application forms are available to register throughout the year.

When the form is received you will be added to our list of new applications. Other electors may object to your name being added to the Register. Should this occur we will write to you with an explanation. If there are no objections we will amend your details within 2-6 weeks of receipt and send written confirmation.

We will inform the Electoral Registration Officer for your old address that you have moved. Your name can then be removed from that Register.

How long does it take to get my details on the Register of Electors?
The Register is updated at the beginning of each month and your details will take between 2 and 6 weeks to be updated depending on when your application is received.

A table of dates is available below:
