The electoral roll in the United Kingdom (also known as the electoral register) resides with the local electoral registration office, or the Council Office, in England and Wales. If in Northern Ireland, your electoral roll resides with the Electoral Office of Northern Ireland. It is important to note the Electoral Commission itself does not keep the electoral roll. Changing your address on the electoral roll requires you to fill out a new registration form and submit it to your local registration office. The local registration office will replace the old form with the most recent form submitted.
