What is the Electoral Register?
There are two versions of the Electoral Register - the full electoral register and the open register.
The Electoral Register contains the names and addresses of all people who are eligible to vote in Elections. The elections team at Warwick District Council use the register for electoral purposes, such as issuing poll cards.
It is also used for:
- detecting crime
- calling people for jury service
- checking credit applications
Candidates, registered political parties and other registered campaigners are also allowed to have copies of the full electoral register. They can use the register for campaigning activities, including sending election communication to voters.
The electoral register is a public document and is available for inspection under supervision by staff at council offices during office hours. An appointment is required, please contact the elections team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The open register, is an extract of the full electoral register. This version is available to anyone who wants to buy it, such as businesses or charities.
Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask for them to be removed. Removing your details from the open register does not affect your right to vote.
If you would like to opt out of the open register, please email email@example.com and a member of our team will assist you.
Warwick District Council is responsible for maintaining the electoral register within Warwick district.
