Useful information :
** Providing false information on this form is a criminal offence for which you could be sent to prison for up to six months or fined £5000 or both. If you have been asked to complete this form, not providing the information is an offence for which you could be fined up to £1000.
** You can only vote at elections if your name is on the register of electors.
** The register may be used by people to decide whether or not to give you credit. If you are not on the register, you may find it difficult to get a loan, to open a bank account or get credit. Use this form to register to vote or update your details (if your name, address or signature has changed). Remember that this form contains personal information which could be of interest to criminals. You should return it only to the Electoral Office for Northern Ireland.
** We need one form for each person.
** You must give your date of birth and your National Insurance number and sign the form yourself – no-one else can sign it for you.
** You must be a British, Irish, Commonwealth or European Union citizen, and you must give your nationality on the form.
** When we receive the form, we will check the information you have given. We will change or add your details on the register within six weeks if we accept your application. We will send you a letter of confirmation which will also give the date the changes come into effect.
** You may need to provide documents to support your application – see the attached registration evidence guidance.
** The full and edited electoral registers
** The edited register. If you tick the ‘edited register’ box, your name and address will not appear on the edited register, which anyone can buy or use for any purpose.
** Any person, company or organisation including ‘junk- mail’ companies can buy a copy of the edited register for business activities such as marketing.
** The full register lists the name and address of everyone who is registered. By law, certain public organisations and people, including politicians, can receive the full register. Anyone can look at it but it is a crime to supply or use the information for purposes other than those allowed by law. Credit-reference agencies can use the full register, but only to check your name and address if you are applying for credit.
