Revised Register of Electors

The electoral register is a list of everybody within the borough who is registered to vote.

It has been compiled from voter registration forms we delivered to all residential addresses in Epsom and Ewell last year.

On the 1 February a new Electoral Register will be published. This will be used for all elections and referendums called between 1 February 2020 and 30 November 2020.

It is still possible to register to vote throughout the year. You can register at gov.uk/register-to-vote

Using the information received by the public, we keep two registers, the electoral register and the open register (also known as the edited register).

The electoral register
The electoral register lists the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote in elections. The register is used for electoral purposes, such as making sure only eligible people can vote. It is also used for other limited purposes specified in law, such as:

  • detecting crime (eg fraud)
  • calling people for jury service
  • checking credit applications

The open register
The open register is an extract of the electoral register, but it's not used for elections. Under national law, it can be bought by any person, company or organisation. For example, it is used by businesses and charities to confirm name and address details. Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask for them to be removed. Removing your details from the open register does not affect your right to vote.

If you have any queries regarding the register please contact our Electoral Services team by email electoralservices@epsom-ewell.gov.uk

The official bit
In accordance with Section 13(3) of the Representation of the People Act 1983, notice is hereby given of the Electoral Registration Officer’s intention to publish a revised Register of Electors.

The revised register will be published on 1 February 2020 following the conclusion of the Polling District and Polling Places Review in October 2019.

The register will be available for inspection at the Town Hall, The Parade, Epsom, Surrey KT18 5BY.
