The Electoral Commission does not hold data on the number of voters wrongly excluded from the electoral register at the 2017 UK general election.

The electoral register is managed by individual Electoral Registration Officers (EROs) at local authorities. They are legally responsible for determining if an application to register to vote is from an eligible individual.
