Running electoral registration - Scotland

What information must I keep about registration reviews?

You must keep a list of reviews.1 The list must contain the following information for each review, unless the review relates to an anonymous entry on the register.2  

  • the full name, qualifying address and elector number of the subject of the review
  • the reason for the review

The list must be available for inspection at your office.3 You may keep the list electronically, such as on your EMS, and produce a paper copy for inspection on demand. 

You should maintain a clear audit trail of the reviews you have undertaken and the processes you have followed, including records of information taken into consideration in your decision-making.

If the subject is under 16 years old, you must not include them in the list of reviews available for inspection at your office.4
