Electoral register

Each autumn we canvass all households in the district to establish who is eligible to vote in the following year. After this annual review, all the information is put into the revised register which is published in December of each year.

If you want to view the current register you can do so at the Council's main customer contact centre, Market Cross, Selby (full address and contact details can be found on the contact us page).

As all viewings of the register must be supervised by a member of our Electoral Services team. If you would like to view the register, you will need to make an appointment by phoning 01757 705101 or emailing electoralregistration@selby.gov.uk.

There are two versions of the electoral register - the ‘open register’ and the 'edited register'.  Everyone’s name and address goes on the 'open register', which is used for:

  • elections
  • preventing and detecting crime
  • checking applications for loans or credit

The ‘open register’ is available to anyone who wishes to purchase a copy, but you can opt out of it. Opting out doesn’t affect your right to vote.
