Register to vote anonymously

Want to register to vote but concerned about your personal details being available? You may be able to register to vote anonymously.

I am concerned about my name appearing on the electoral register. Can I register anonymously?

Yes, you can register to vote anonymously for safety reasons – such as if you are escaping violence or have a job that puts you at risk from other people.

If you are registered anonymously, instead of your name and address appearing on the electoral register, a code will be added to the register.

To register to vote anonymously you need to provide documentary evidence of a court order or an attestation from an authorised person to support your application.

In England, Scotland or Wales you should download a form to register to vote anonymously from gov.uk

In Northern Ireland you should download a form from the Electoral Office for Northern Ireland website.
