Electoral Registration

Electoral Registration


Each year the Electoral Registration Officer (ERO) is required to conduct a canvass of all households in their area for the purpose of updating the electoral register.

The ERO is required to get in touch with every household to check that the electoral register is up to date, and to identify any residents who should be registered but are currently missing. With all nationalities now able to vote in Scottish Parliament and council elections, this was an important opportunity to ensure these new voters can get onto the electoral register before next year’s Scottish Parliament election.

The 2020 canvass took place between August and November and information provided was used to update the register which was published on 1 December 2020.
