Opt in or out of the Open Version of the Electoral Register

You can opt in or out of appearing on the open register. This is an extract of the electoral register.

Electoral register

The electoral register lists the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote in public elections. It is used for electoral purposes e.g to make sure only eligible people can vote.

It can be used for other limited purposes specified by law, such as:

  • detecting crime (e.g fraud)
  • calling people for jury service
  • checking credit applications

Please tell us when you reach 76 years old as you are no longer eligible to undertake jury service. We need to know your name, address and date of birth to update this information on the Electoral Register.

Open register

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. It is used by businesses and charities to confirm name and address details. 

Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask for them to be removed. Removing your details from the open register does not affect your right to vote.

Use the form on this page to opt in or out of the open register. We will send you a letter once we've processed your request. This form is only for residents living in the Fenland District Council area.
