Registering to vote anonymously

I am concerned about my name appearing on the electoral register; can I register anonymously?

Yes, you can register to vote anonymously for safety reasons – such as if you are escaping violence or have a job that puts you at risk from other people.

If you are registered anonymously, instead of your name and address appearing on the electoral register, a code will be added to the register.

To register to vote anonymously you need to provide documentary evidence of a court order or an attestation from an authorised person to support your application.
