Every year from the mid August until end of November a full audit/ review of the electoral register is undertaken. During this audit you will be advised how you can make changes to the person(s) registered to vote for your household.
Go to our Electoral register – annual review page for further details.
Requesting amendments outside of the annual review period
If you move home or your name changes following marriage, after the annual canvass has been completed you will need to ensure that you are included on the electoral register as soon as possible.
This process is called Rolling Registration and can be undertaken at any time of the year. To request an amendment you will need to complete the application form. This is available to download below.

You can also request a form online. Unfortunately you cannot register to vote online because we need your signature for legal purposes. Simply give us your details and we will post you the form to complete, sign and return.
Any additions/amendments to the register will appear within about a month from receipt of the application.
Unlike the annual Registration Form which can be signed by any one member of the household, every person eligible to vote at the property must sign the Electoral Registration Form.
Please make sure you include your previous address on the form. If you have moved from another local authority area, we will tell them to remove your name from their Electoral Register.
If you would like further information or require assistance in registering to vote call our Electoral Services helpline on (01443) 864203 or email email@example.com.
