Cabinet Office does not hold information on the number of electors who have successfully enrolled onto each individual Local Authority’s electoral register. Some registration statistics are available from the Office for National Statistics website (www.ons.gov.uk) but this does not include a breakdown by age.

Cabinet Office does, however, hold data on the number of applications to register to vote. The total number of individual applications since 24 June 2016, from 18-24 year olds – both online, via the Register to Vote Website, and by paper form – is 3.9 million.
