The electoral register lists the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote in public elections. The register is used for electoral purposes, such as making sure only eligible people can vote. It is also used for other limited purposes specified in law, such as: detecting crime (e.g. fraud), calling people for jury service, checking credit applications.
The open register is an extract of the electoral register, but is not used for elections. It can be bought by any person, company or organisation. For example, it is used by businesses and charities to confirm name and address details.
Removing your details from the open register does not affect your right to vote.
Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask for them to be removed. You can remove your details at any time by contacting us via email or phone
The Full Register is available for inspection at the Elections Office, Town Hall and at Stockport Central Library. Branch libraries have the electoral register for the ward(s) that they cover.
