Update your name or nationality
If you have recently changed name or nationality then you need to update your electoral information.
What you might need:

Update your address
If you have recently changed address then you need to update your electoral information. If you vote by post it’s important that you complete a new postal vote application form with your new information as your postal vote doesn’t move with you.
Opt out of the open register
There are 2 registers – the electoral register and the open register.
The electoral register has everyone’s name and address and legally anyone over the age of 16 must be on it. The register is only used for the elections, checking applications for credit or loans and preventing crime.
The open register is available for anyone to view at their local elections office and the information can be sold for marketing purposes. If you do not wish for your details to be available you can opt out of the open register, it does not affect your right to vote or apply for credit.
