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

The 2023 canvass took place between July and November and information provided was used to update the register which was published on 1 December 2023.

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