Electoral Register FAQ
Common Questions Regarding The Electoral Roll
There are two versions of the roll; you can choose to opt out of one version, but your details need to be on the other version for credit checks to obtain bank loans, credit cards and mortgages, so credit reference agencies can search your details when you apply for credit.
The two versions are:
- The full version, which is used when you vote in elections.
- The open (or edited) version, which is available for companies to purchase, you can opt out of this version if you wish.
What's the full version used for? The full version lists names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote in public elections (general elections and local), and it's used to ensure only eligible voters can place a vote. It therefore helps to prevent electoral fraud.
Do my details need to be on the full version? YES, If they are not then applying for any form of credit, credit cards, loans etc will be very hard, as it will result in identification and residential tracing problems.
What's the open / edited roll and do I need to be on it? this is the public version of the electoral roll. It's mainly used by business for marketing purposes. whilst you need to be on the electoral roll to vote, and to apply for credit, there's no requirement for you to be on the open electoral roll.
Can I check if I am on the open electoral roll? Yes, use the box at the top of this page to see if you appear listed.
