Overview

Your name and address will be on the electoral register if you register to vote.

If you think your name and address being on the electoral register could affect your safety, or the safety or someone in your household, you can register to vote anonymously.

This means you will still be able to vote, but your name and address will not be on the electoral register. Your electoral registration office will not disclose your details to anyone, unless they are legally required to.

Steps to register anonymously

There are three steps to register to vote anonymously. You will need to:

  • download and complete the application form
  • explain why your safety, or the safety of someone in your household, would be at risk if your details were on the electoral register
  • submit evidence to support your registration

You will need to return your application form, explanation and evidence to your local registration office.
