The open register is an extract of the electoral register, but is not used for elections. It can be bought by any person, company or organisation. For example, it is used by businesses and charities to confirm name and address details. If you are aged 16 or over, your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask for them to be removed. Removing your details from the open register does not affect your right to vote.
You can opt out of the open register when you register to vote. You can also contact us to change your preference at any time.
You can contact us by using the following methods to remove your details from the open register, please ensure you provide your full name and address.
