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 is an important opportunity to ensure that all eligible voters can get onto the electoral register before the Local Council elections in May 2022.

The 2021 canvass took place between August and November and information provided was used to update the register which was published on 1 December 2021.
