unstar this property answer text <p>The Electoral Commission informs me that it provided estimates for the completeness of the December 2010 and April 2011 registers in Great Britain in its ‘Great Britain's electoral registers 2011' report.

In any given year there will be a variety of reasons why such a change would occur, the most significant of which will usually be the impact of home movement after the annual canvass, which was the case in this instance.</p><p> </p><p>The Commission's report explaining the background to its research can be found here: <a href="http://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0007/145366/Great-Britains-electoral-registers-2011.pdf%20" target="_blank"><strong>http://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0007/145366/Great-Britains-electoral-registers-2011.pdf</strong></a></p>
