It is not possible to remove yourself from the electoral register at your address unless you move. When you re-register to your new address, your new local authority will ensure you are removed from the electoral register at your previous address.

You can remove yourself from the open register (the register that is available for general sale) at any time by contacting your local electoral registration office. In Scotland, details of 14 and 15 year olds will not be included in the open register.

If you are at risk if your name appears on the electoral register, you may be able to register anonymously.
