Guidance and resources for running electoral registration

We are currently working to transition our suite of core guidance for EROs into the new web-based format, with content being added regularly over the summer. Our existing PDF guidance is still available below in the meantime and we will confirm through an EA bulletin once the transition work is complete.

The guidance in its new format can be found here:
Running electoral registration – England
Running electoral registration – Scotland
Running electoral registration – Wales

Our guidance on delivering the annual canvass can be found here:
Delivering the annual canvass - England

You can find registration forms and letters for England, Scotland and Wales here
