Registering to vote anonymously means that your name and address will not be on the electoral register.

If you think your name and address being on the electoral register could affect your safety, or the safety or 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.

There are three steps to register to vote anonymously. You will need to:

  • Download and complete an application form from The Electoral Commission or request one to be posted to you by contacting Electoral Services
  • Explain why your safety, or the safety of someone in your household, would be at risk if your details were on the electoral register
  • Submit evidence to support your registration

To support your application, you can submit:

  • 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.

For further information on what court documents you can use or who can provide an attestation, please visit this Electoral Commission webpage.

You will need to return your application form, explanation and evidence to Electoral Registration Officer, Charnwood Borough Council, Southfield Road, Loughborough, LE11 2TR.
