Can the electoral register affect my credit rating?
You may be denied credit or told you have a low credit score if you are not on the electoral register.
To find out more, see the credit reference agencies guide from the Information Commissioner’s Office
You can ask us to check the register or request a letter to prove you are on it. This is called a Certificate of Inclusion.
If you would like a Certificate of Inclusion, contact Electoral Services:
