Everyone’s name and address goes on the full version of the electoral register. The full version of the register is only used for:
- preventing and detecting crime (for example, fraud)
- calling people for jury service
- checking credit applications
A full version of the electoral register is held at The Forum in Hemel Hempstead and can be viewed by anyone under supervision.
Registering to vote anonymously
You may be able to register anonymously if you can show that there’s a good reason, such as you’re concerned about your safety.
Your details won’t appear on either version of the electoral register if you register anonymously.
Please contact us to find out if you can register anonymously. You will need to provide documentary evidence to support your application.
