The record held by your local authority which records whether you are eligible to vote in various types of election. Important in credit as the electoral roll (sometimes known as the voters’ roll, or the electoral register), is used as an index for credit files, in the absence of any other national database of UK residents.
There is more than one version of the Electoral Roll. The main one is compiled by the Electoral Registration Officer at your local council. Every October, the Electoral Registration Officer writes to every household in his area and asks for the list of occupants to be updated. Most people are best advised simply to wait for the annual cycle, which will update your Electoral Roll status on your credit report automatically.
