Electoral registration officers are able to use data held by their local authority in order to identify potential electors. With the transition to individual electoral registration in June 2014, all existing electors will be matched against records held by the DWP, and if successfully matched, ‘confirmed' on the register. Local authorities can also ‘confirm' their electors using local data.
