A response to the feedback received to the anonymous registration policy statement published in March 2017, as we continue to improve our electoral registration process to make it as accessible as possible to ensure that every voice counts.

We set out in the policy statement “A democracy that works for everyone: survivors of domestic abuse” our intention to improve the accessibility of anonymous registration for those individuals whose safety must be protected when registering to vote. In particular we are looking to help victims and survivors of domestic violence and abuse, for whom appearing anonymously in the register provides a vital layer of protection when they are escaping abuse.
