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 will be getting 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. Everyone who lives in Scotland and is 14 or over can now register to vote.

To respond please follow the instructions included in your canvass communication. You can access the online response channel here.

This year canvass will take place between July and November and information provided will be used to update the register which will be published on 1 December 2022.

If you’re not currently registered, the easiest way is online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
