Changing details on the Electoral Register

If you need to make a change to the details already included on the Wandsworth Council Electoral Register, you will need to inform us.

Change of address

If you have moved, either within Wandsworth or to another borough, you will need to make an application to register at your new address.

Apply to register to vote straightaway, and make sure you include the address where you were last registered so that your details can be automatically removed from your previous address.

Removal of a name from the Register

If a change in circumstances at your address means that someone is no longer entitled to be registered, please let us know.

We require two sources of information to remove a name from the Register. If we cannot obtain a second source of information in addition to your notification, we may contact the person(s) being removed at their registered address.
