When credit companies will know you are registered
We usually publish a new electoral register once a year on 1 December following a full canvass of electors*.
You can, however, register to vote at any time, updates are usually sent to credit companies on the 1st of every month, the deadlines are below. The only months credit companies do not receive an update is October and November as it is during our yearly canvass of electors.
As long as no-one objects to your name appearing on the electoral register for the address you give, we will add you to it when we update it.
We will let you know when we have added your name to the electoral register and also if anyone has objected to your name being included on it.
