Electoral Registration and Voting: Frequently Asked Questions

If your application is received in the office after 11 August and before 15 November your name will be published on the register from 1st December of that year - providing we do not receive any objections or information to indicate that you may not reside at the property. If this happens the process may take longer and your application, if accepted may not show until the following January or February. After the 1 December we publish updates to the register on the 1st working day of each month from January to September - the deadline dates for receipt of the forms and the publish date are shown on the back of the application forms.
