The open electoral register

We keep two registers:

  • the full register, sometimes referred to as the electoral register
  • the open register, sometimes referred to as the edited register

The open register can be purchased by anyone and used for any purpose.

You can choose to "opt out" so that your name and address are excluded from the open register. Removing your details from the open register does not affect your right to vote.

(Please note: This is not anonymous registration. For more information on anonymous registration, please visit our Electoral Registration page.)

You can buy a copy of the open register, sometimes known as the edited register, for commercial or marketing purposes.

The open register contains the names and addresses of electors who have not chosen to opt out of the open register.

The cost of the open register is based on the format required and the number of records to be purchased.

The cost is set out in legislation and is the same across the United Kingdom. The fees for sale of the open register are:

  • Data format - £20 plus £1.50 per 1,000 entries (or remaining part of 1,000 entries) in it
  • Printed format - £10 plus £5 per 1,000 entries (or remaining part of 1,000 entries) in it

To enquire about buying a copy, or part of the open register, please email  voter-registration@cornwall.gov.uk with details of the parish, town or area you require.
