Individual electoral registration - How do I register

The Electoral Register is a list of everybody within Bassetlaw who is entitled to vote.

It has been compiled from voter registration forms that were delivered to all residential addresses during the annual canvass.

On 1st December 2019 a new Register was published. A revised register will be published on 1 February 2020 to implement the final Polling District changes as recommended from the Polling District and Polling Places Review 2019, which can be viewed on the Council’s website: https://www.bassetlaw.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/elections-in-bassetlaw/polling-districts-and-polling-places-review/
