There are two registers - Why?

Using information received from the public, registration officers keep two registers - the electoral register and the open register (also known as the edited register)

The electoral register

The electoral register lists the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote in public elections. The register is used for electoral purposes, such as making sure only eligible people can vote. It is used for other limited purposes specified in law, such as:
•    detecting crime (e.g. fraud)
•    calling people for jury service
•    checking credit applications

The open register

The open register is an extract of the electoral register, but is not used for elections. It can be bought by any person, company or organisation. For example it is used by businesses and charities to confirm name and address details.
Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask for them to be removed, which does not affect your right to vote.
This form is for use only by residents who live in the Ryedale District Council area.
