We will also tell the Electoral Registration Officer for your old address that you have moved, so that your name can be removed from that register. If you do not want to be removed from your other address, please explain why on your form.
There are special rules about names being added to the voters list during an election period. Because of these you may not be able to vote at that election if you are added during this time.
However, during an election period you can apply to be registered up to 5pm, eleven working days before the election.
There are two versions of the Electoral Register and strict rules about who can see and use each version for more details go to Electoral Registers.
