The electoral register, also known as the electoral roll, is a list of everyone who is entitled to vote.

You must be on the register to be able to vote at an election.

Once you are registered there are a number of ways you can vote.

We produce two versions of the electoral register every year. The full register and the open register (formerly called the edited register).

The Full Register

The full Electoral Register lists everyone who is entitled to vote at elections. It is also used by the credit reference agencies.

The Open Register

The open register can be purchased by anyone and used for any purpose.

Anyone who registers to vote can choose to "opt out" so that their details are excluded from the open register.

If you wish to opt-out of the open register please contact the Electoral Services office by emailing electoral.registration@torbay.gov.uk or by ringing 01803 208008.
