Registering to vote

Register to vote anonymously

If you think that being on the electoral register could put your safety at risk, you may be able to register anonymously.

You will need to:

  • explain why your safety (or the safety of someone in the same household) would be at risk if your name or address were on the register, and
  • provide evidence of  a court order or similar to support your application

To register anonymously you'll need to download an anonymous registration form and email it to our Elections team

Your name and address will be replaced by a code, and your details won't be included on any forms sent to the household. If we need to contact you, we'll do this without revealing your anonymous registration.

Applications are valid for one year and renewal details will be sent to you automatically.
