Inspecting the Electoral Register

Public Inspection of the Electoral Register

The Electoral Registration Officer (ERO) is required to restrict access to the electoral register, inspection may only be allowed under supervision (Regulation 43 RPR 2001).

Anyone can inspect the Electoral Register. If you wish to inspect our Electoral Register, please contact the Elections Office on 01827 214155 or by emailing

The register can only be viewed at our council offices located at:

Tamworth Borough Council

Marmion House

Lichfield Street

Currently, inspection is only available via appointment.

The full register of electors lists the names and address of all those registered to vote in public elections. It is open to public inspection, but only handwritten notes may be taken. Photocopying or electronic recording are not allowed by law. Information from the full list may not be used for commercial purposes if the elector has ‘opted out’ of the edited voters list. You will be asked to sign a form to confirm you understand the above.

Anyone who fails to observe these conditions is committing a criminal offence (maximum fine £5,000).

The layout of the Electoral Register is prescribed in law. It is printed in polling district and street order. It is NOT printed alphabetically in name order.
