The electoral register is compiled for each electoral polling district and has two formats. The full version is made available for supervised inspection by anybody, by legal right for free. It does however mean you will have to make an appointment and visit the local authority offices in person, in the area of the person you are looking for which is not much good if they live hundreds of miles away, or you have no idea where they may be so that can be time consuming and inconvenient. You also will not be allowed to make any copy of the register or divulge any details on it as this is a criminal offence. Its much cheaper when you consider fuel costs and your time to do an online search if you need to locate a person or their address.
The full unedited electoral register version is used for voting and its supply and use is limited by the law. Copies of the full electoral register are available to certain groups and individuals, such as credit reference agencies when you apply for credit, and the police.
