Electoral Register

What is the Electoral Register?

The Electoral Register is the compiled list of all those in a particular locality that are registered to vote. It is compulsory by law to provide details to the register and includes information such as:

  • Name
  • Age
  • Nationality
  • Address
  • National insurance number

The register was introduced in England, Scotland and Wales in 2014. It is published once a year but updated every month.

How can the Electoral Register help with your data?

The Electoral Register can be used in conjunction with other datasets to create a more accurate view of their data.

For example, the Experian Names Dataset contains over 39 million names from the UK Electoral Register and can be combined with the National Canvasse to allow users access to more accurate and complete datasets.

The full Electoral Register is only available for use for permitted purposes. This data can help you with profiling, analysis and specific reporting.
