A revised electoral register is published at the conclusion of the annual canvass of electors every year.

The latest revised register is then updated throughout the year by publication of monthly notices of alteration.

The process of monthly alterations to the register is referred to as “rolling registration,” where electors can be added or removed from the register on the publication of monthly notices.

To ensure an elector has been added or removed from the register prior to the publication of the next alteration notice, the Electoral Registration Officer must be notified by the last date for registration applications.

Applications are open for public inspection for a further 5 working days to allow for any objections until the Electoral Registration Officer makes the final decision by the determination deadline as to whether an alteration to the register is required.

The timetable for publication of alteration notices is shown below. The dates may change if an election is required.
