The Electoral Register is published on an annual basis, with updates published periodically throughout the year. The 2022 Electoral Register was published on 1 December 2021. The 2023 Electoral Register is expected to be published on 1 December 2022.

There are no monthly updates to the register in October and November due to the Annual Canvass.
