You should note that registering for other Council services or paying Council Tax does not automatically put you on the register.
To check if you are registered, contact the Electoral Services Team.
How to get your name on the Electoral Register
- Download the registration form below under "Printable forms" and print it out;
- Complete the form, providing your name (one person per form) and address;
- Say whether you would like to be on the full or edited register – see below for the differences between the two versions of the register;
- Sign the form and return it to the Electoral Services Team, Council Offices, Holt Road, Cromer (The return address is also on the form.)
Alternatively, you can visit our Cromer Office and complete a form to add your name to the register.
The Full Register
The full register lists everyone who is entitled to vote. Only certain people and organisations can have copies of the full register and they can only use it for specified purposes. These include electoral purposes, the prevention and detection of crime and checking your identity when you have applied for credit.
The law says who can have a copy of the full register and what they can use it for. The full list of people able to see it, and for what purposes, is given in the Representation of the People (England and Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2002 (available from the Office of Public Sector Information).
It is a criminal offence for them to pass it on to anyone else or to use it for any other purpose. The full register can be checked at our offices in Cromer and at Fakenham Connect, Oak Street, Fakenham. However, anyone checking the full register must be supervised and may only make hand written notes.
The Edited Register
The edited register leaves out the names and addresses of people who have asked for them to be excluded from that version of the register. The edited register can be bought by anyone and it may be used for any purpose.
A copy of the edited register is available at the reception desk at our Cromer Offices and at Fakenham Connect, Oak Street, Fakenham. As with viewing the full register, the edited register must be viewed under supervision and only hand written notes may be made.
Voter Registration Form
Rolling registration allows the Elections Office to add new residents to the electoral register at the beginning of each month, as long as they are qualified and complete an electoral registration form. See the timetable below.
Deletions and amendments are also made each month, usually during the months of January to September.

Normally, during September, October and November (the annual canvass period) all households have to register. However, this year the canvass is likely to commence in December and once confirmation of this is received we will provide full details in the section on our web pages relating to the Annual Canvass.
During election periods, if your registration form is received 11 working days before polling day and no objection is made, you will be eligible to vote in that election. However, your details will only be published on the electoral register from the beginning of the month following polling day.
