All electoral registration officers (EROs) have received funding, based on their levels of under-registration, to help with the costs of local activities to maximise registration, as part of the transition to individual electoral registration.

Funding allocations were based on the number of non-registered people, comparing the size of the register to the 16+ population. An element was based on the number of 16 to 18-year-olds to encourage activity in schools to register attainers.
