The electoral register lists the name and address of everyone who has registered to vote.
By the 1 December 2016, a revised Register must be published using information collected between July 2016 and November 2016.
Under new regulations the Register is also updated on a monthly basis when the canvass is not underway. This allows anyone who has moved into or within the Borough to update their Registration details. Information on this can be obtained from Electoral Services .
By law the Electoral Registration Officer has to make the register available for anyone to look at, in person, under supervision. Copies may not be taken of the electoral register other than by hand written notes.
The register is held at:
- the Electoral Services Unit,
- the Halifax Central library and
- Calderdale Customer First at Halifax, Todmorden and Brighouse.
In the past, anyone could buy a copy of the register. But the law has now changed so that you have some choice about who can buy details of your name and address. There are now Two versions of the register : the electoral register and the open register.
When you fill in your invitation to register, you will be able to choose whether you want your name and address included in the open register. For details of how to register see Registering to vote .
If you require confirmation of your entry on the electoral register, this can be provided for a pre-paid fee (currently £9.00), please contact Electoral Services .
