star this property answer text <p>The matching of electoral registers against Government and local authority data, referred to as ‘confirmation,’ was a one off exercise to help simplify the change to Individual Electoral Registration (IER). It resulted in 87% of existing electors being automatically transferred to the new registers under IER without needing to take any action. Data matching continues to form an important part of the system for voter registration, in verifying new applications, but also locally in identifying and verifying applications from eligible electors. We will keep under review the scope for data to further improve voter registration.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Since June 2014, over 11 million people have applied to register to vote, three quarters using the new, ultra-convenient online system which takes less time than boiling an egg. At the General Election there were 400,000 more entries on the register than before, and thanks to Individual Electoral Registration (IER), 96 out of every 100 entries have been confirmed as genuine.</p><p>We’re now focusing on the remaining 4 out of 100. By December, Electoral Registration Officers will have attempted to contact each of them nine times over 18 months. Any genuine voters will be confirmed on the register, and the remaining inaccurate entries, of people who have moved away, dies or were registered fraudulently, will be removed.</p> more like this
