How accurate is the Electoral Roll
The truth is not that accurate. In 2012 over 44% of the population are not recorded on the electoral register because they have opted out of the edited electoral roll record. That is why we along with some other quality people search invest in other data sources to ensure further coverage.
People can often move home and remain on the electoral roll for many years after they have long gone from the address the electoral roll records has current.
We would advise strongly that Electoral roll records should not be relied upon to confirm current residency for a person at a given address. The electoral roll should be used as a general guide, use other available resources to confirm current residency like Gone away data?
Our people finder database often bridges the obvious electoral roll gaps with consented data which augments the Electoral roll data to provide a more accurate reflection of current or historic residency records in the UK.
What is consented data?
Consented data is information purchased from organisations that interface with the public on a regular basis like traders the public have purchased goods from or comparison websites etc in. In the terms and conditions specific informed consent has been obtained to use this information.
Consented data is normally a full name and address with contact telephone numbers and even email addresses.
Who is on the UK electoral Roll
The text book answer in broad terms are:
To vote in parliamentary elections in the UK you must be a British citizen, a citizen of another Commonwealth country or of the Irish Republic, as well as being resident in the UK, aged 18 or over, included in the register of electors for the constituency and not subject to any legal incapacity to vote.
People not entitled to vote include members of the House of Lords, foreign nationals resident in the UK (other than Commonwealth citizens or citizens of the Irish Republic), some patients detained under mental health legislation, sentenced prisoners and people convicted within the previous five years of corrupt or illegal election practices.
Only registered voters who are listed on the edited electoral roll can be found using ONLY electoral roll searches on all UK people search web sites.
What is the Electoral Register in General Terms?
The UK electoral register is the list of everyone who is registered to vote in your local area or voting ward. You must be on the electoral register to vote at elections, and not being on the register can also affect your credit rating because shops and commercial organisations find it difficult to confirm residency records upon application for most services.
It should also be remembered that you are not automatically registered even if you pay council tax at a property.
There are two versions of the register - the full version and the edited version. Your details will appear on the full version of the register, but you can choose to have excluded your details from the edited version when registering.
The full register is used by the Police and security services and is used for elections, preventing and detecting crime, and checking applications for credit by credit reference agencies.
The edited register is available for general sale and can be used for commercial activities such as marketing or implemented into people finding databases.
Just remember our people tracing database does not rely purely upon the UK electoral roll records to confirm either residency or none residency at any UK address. Good luck with your people search.
