Electoral Register


Public document

The electoral register/voters roll is a public document available for inspection which lists everyone who is entitled to vote in the district.


We hold two versions - the electoral register and the open register.


Electoral Register


The electoral register lists the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote in a public election. The register is used for electoral purposes and can be used for other limited purposes specified by law including detecting crime, jury service and credit applications.


Open Register


The open register is an extract of the electoral register however it is not used for elections. It can be bought be any person, company or organisation. Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask us to remove it. Removing your details from the open register does not affect your right to vote.


If you do NOT want to appear in this version make sure you indicate on your voter registration form or annual canvass form your desire to opt-out of appearing. You can also permanently opt-out so we do not ask you again each year. Please write to us stating that you wish to be excluded from the Open Register permanently under the terms of the Data Protection Act. Each person must do this individually.


We update the register monthly (click on monthly revisions timetable below). By law we also have to carry out an annual canvass. We'll hand deliver a form to your home each year during the summer/early Autumn so you can let us know whether your circumstances have changed or not.



If there are any changes you should:

  • Return the amended form in the post

If there are no changes you should: 

  • Ring our freephone number
  • Send a text message

South Staffordshire District Council is required to participate in the National Fraud Initiative (NFI) under Part 6 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014. The authority is under a duty to protect the public funds it administers. It may share information provided to it, with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds, in order to prevent and detect fraud.


In order to fulfil this requirement, the Council submitted electoral register data in December 2015.
