Electoral register

Register to vote.

If you have not registered your details on the Electoral Register you will not be able to vote in any elections, polls or referendums.

You can check the Electoral Register (the list of people that are registered to vote) at The Symington Building or by emailing e.services@harborough.gov.uk

A revised register will be published on 1 March 2017 following the implementation of the final recommendations of the electoral review for Leicestershire County Council by Order of Parliament. View the notice of the Intention to Republish the Register of Electors (PDF, 179KB).

There are 2 versions of the register for people that can vote:

  • Electoral register: includes everyone who has applied to be added; its use is very restricted and it can only be accessed by credit reference agencies, some government bodies and for political use
  • Open register: can be purchased by anyone for purposes such as mail-shots; if you don’t want your details to be included on the open register you must tell us, email e.services@harborough.gov.uk
