Register of Electors
The register of electors is the list of everyone who is registered to vote. The Council updates it every year using the details from the registration form you receive from us. We will send out election registration forms to every residential property in the borough during September. By law, the registration form is required to be completed and returned from all households and failure to do so could result in a fine of up to £1000.
The Register is not connected to any other Council records, so paying Council Tax is not enough to make sure you can vote
The register is updated on a monthly basis during the rest of the year with the alterations being published between January and September.
The Register is published in two versions:
- The FULL Register lists all voters and is available to Political Parties for election use only, to certain government agencies for crime prevention, and it will also be sold to Credit Agencies to help them check identities in credit applications. It will be available for public inspection, under supervision, at the Civic Offices.
- The EDITED Register can be sold to anybody and used for any purpose. For example, direct mailing companies may use it to send you information about goods and services. You can choose to be left off the EDITED Register. If you do not want your details to appear on this Register, you must tell us. You can do so by ticking the box against your name and any other electors in your household on the Registration Form. If the box is not ticked the elector's details will be sold to any requesting a copy of the Register. A copy of the Edited Register can be viewed at libraries in Milton Keynes.
