You may be able to register anonymously if you are concerned about your name and address appearing on the electoral register because you think that it could affect your safety, or the safety of someone in the same household as you.

By registering anonymously, your name and address will not appear on the electoral register and you can be sure that your personal details will be kept confidential.

If you apply to register anonymously, you will need to:

  • Explain why your safety (or the safety of someone in the same household as you) would be at risk if your name and address appeared on the electoral register
  • Provide a court document or an attestation from an authorised person to support your application

For advice and an anonymous registration application form, please contact our Electoral Services team. Please use our contact details shown on this page.
