Further information about registering to vote can be found at ‘the Electoral Commission Website’. If you believe that you may be at risk if your details appear on the electoral register you may be able to register anonymously.
Anonymous registration was set up to help individuals whose safety would be at risk (or where the safety of other people at the same address as them would be at risk) if their name or address was listed on the electoral register – for example a person who has fled domestic abuse.
