3. Open register

The open register is an extract of the electoral register that isn't used for elections.

It can be bought by any person, company or organisation and is often used by businesses and charities to check name and address details.

Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask for it to be removed. Removing your details from the open register does not affect your right to vote.

The open register does not include telephone numbers or email addresses.

Opting out of the open register does not affect your credit report.

To change your ‘opt out status’ please complete the online form below.
