The Register of Electors lists:
- Residents on Isle of Anglesey who can vote in various elections.
- Overseas voters whose last registration to vote was at an Isle of Anglesey address.
- Service personnel who have registered under a service declaration.
- Homeless people who have a local connection.
The Register of Electors is amended each autumn and published on 1 December of each year after we have completed our annual research of all Isle of Anglesey households. It’s also updated on the first working day of each month under a rolling registration scheme.
If you are not on the Register of Electors, you will not be able to vote.
There are two registers
Using information received from the public, registration officers keep two registers –
The electoral register
The electoral register lists the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote in public elections. The register is used for electoral purposes, such as making sure only eligible people can vote.
It is also used for other limited purposes specified in law, such as
- detecting crime (e.g. fraud)
- calling people for jury service
- checking credit applications.
The open register (also known as the edited register).
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.
Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask for them to be removed by telephoning 01248 752548.
Removing your details from the open register does not affect your right to vote.
You can find more information about both registers and how they may be used at www.gov.uk/yourvotematters
