What happens once I have registered?

If your application is valid and not subject to any objections we will write to tell you that you will be added to the electoral register.

However, there may be some cases where we need more information – for example, about another address or about your immigration status – and we will contact you if this is required.

If we are unable to verify your details or need further clarification after application we will contact you:

  • either to clarify any element of your application
  • or to ask you to provide documentary evidence, such as a copy of a passport or driving licence, to support your application.

Register Updates

Electoral services issue a monthly update, called a “list of alterations”. This is published every month except at the annual update period, which this year is between September and November where all properties in North Kesteven are contacted. Please note that a full revised register is published on 1st December every year following the annual canvass

It is against the law for households not to complete and return the annual electoral registration form. There is a maximum fine of £1,000 for any false information given on a registration form.

How can I find out if I am registered?

You can check whether you are already registered by contacting the Elections team by email to elections@n-kesteven.gov.uk or by phone on 01529 414155.
