Since 10 June, over four million people have applied to register to vote and about two thirds of those have chosen to do so online.

Information on the amount of additional people that have joined the register since June will not be available until after the Electoral Commission publish their analysis of the electoral registers in February as part of their assessment of the transition to IER in England and Wales. The assessment for Scotland will be published by the EC in due course following publication of the Scottish registers at the end of February.
