The Electoral Commission informs me that the confirmation dry run involved matching all entries on the electoral registers against the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) Customer Information System database. Entries would be marked as green if they matched with DWP, amber if they were a partial match or red if there was no match.

The ward results for the East Lothian constituency were as follows:

Percentage
Ward Green matches Amber matches Red matches
Dunbar and East Linton 78.7 5.1 16.2
Fa'side 80.9 3.0 16.0
Haddington and Lammermuir 77.9 5.6 16.5
Musselburgh East and Carberry 79.5 2.6 17.9
Musselburgh West 74.5 2.5 23.0
North Berwick Coastal 78.4 5.3 16.2
Preston/Seton/Gosford 82.2 2.0 15.8

Results for all wards are available on the Commission's website here:
