Registering and voting
Register of Electors (Voters Roll)
The Electoral Registration Officer (ERO) is appointed to prepare and maintain the Register of Electors, also known as the voters roll.
You can now register to vote online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
More information about the changes to the way people register to vote can be found on the Your vote matters page on the UK Government's website.
Am I registered to vote?
The Register of Electors contains details of everyone who has registered to vote. It is used to determine who can vote at elections while the Register is in force. A new Register is published at least once a year, usually on or shortly before 1 December.
Lanarkshire residents received a letter in late October and early November that explained the changes to the electoral registration system. You were asked to look out for the letter as it told you if you had been automatically transferred to the new register or not. If you have not been transferred, you will need to provide some extra information. Canvassers will also be active across Lanarkshire to make sure as many people as possible are registered under the new system.
To find out if you are registered to vote or to request an individual voter registration form contact the Electoral Registration Officer (ERO).
The Register of Electors contains details of everyone who has registered to vote in the South Lanarkshire area.
