How to register to vote anonymously.

If you think your name and address being on the electoral register could affect your safety, or the safety of someone in your household, you can register to vote anonymously.

This means you will still be able to vote, but your name and address will not be on the electoral register. We will not disclose your details to anyone, unless we are legally required to.

For more information, please see the Electoral Commission - register to vote anonymously web page.

How to register to vote anonymously

There are 3 steps to register anonymously. You will need to:

  1. Download and complete the Electoral Commission's application form
  2. Explain why your safety, or the safety of someone in your household, would be at risk if your details were on the electoral register
  3. Have evidence to support your registration

Evidence to support your registration can include either:

  • A court document that is for your protection, or the protection of someone in your household
  • An attestation, where an authorised person to signs your application form, to confirm your safety would be at risk

You only need to submit either a court document or an attestation. You do not need to submit both to support your application.

Once you have done all 3 steps, you need to return your application form, explanation and evidence using the contact details below.
