Electoral register

The full Electoral register is a list of all names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote in the Runnymede Borough Council electoral area.

The new Electoral Register was published in full on 1 February 2021.

How long does it take for my new details to get on the electoral register?
We update the electoral register at the beginning of the month from December to September. Depending on when you submit your application the process will take between two and six weeks.

I have already let my local council know I've moved and I am paying Council Tax at my new address. Can they update the electoral register for me?
No. The Council Tax register and the electoral register are two separate registers. The Electoral Registration Officer is not permitted to take names from the Council Tax register and put them on the electoral register and vice versa

Application form

I recently filled in an application form to go on the register but have now received the annual register of elector form which is addressed to 'The present occupier'. Do I still need to return this form?

Yes. We need to confirm that the details we hold are correct and that no further changes have been made. Anyone that has moved out will need to be removed.
