The introduction of individual electoral registration will allow the Government to take steps to improve the completeness of the electoral register.
We will make a full announcement about the Government's plans for the implementation of individual electoral registration shortly. We are working with the Electoral Commission to ensure that the move towards individual electoral registration is informed by appropriate evidence. For example, this year we are funding the Electoral Commission to carry out research to provide a robust national measure of completeness and accuracy of the registers. This is because the current data we have on completeness and accuracy are either incomplete or out of date. Further research will be conducted to measure completeness and accuracy both before and after the move to individual electoral registration.
