It now takes just a few minutes to apply to register and nearly 30<br>million citizens have taken the opportunity to do so in the last three years.

star this property answer text <p>We are committed to improving and modernising electoral registration and are taking a<br>number of actions to meet this aim. For example, we are currently conducting 24 pilots<br>relating to the annual canvass with a view to simplifying this in future. The results of these<br>pilots will be available in 2018 and we will set out next steps at that time.</p><p>The programme is currently managing 23 local authorities undertaking canvass pilots this<br>year, following on from 3 local authorities who piloted last year. These pilots are the<br>starting point to gather evidence with the view of implementing changes to the canvass for<br>the 2019 canvass. The models that are currently being piloted look at how to reduce the<br>burdens of the canvass and reduce the bureaucracy. A working group with our key<br>stakeholders has been set up to start developing potential model ideas for a less<br>bureaucratic registration process.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Most funding for electoral registration is the responsibility of local authorities. However, in<br>recent years (including all the years in question) the Cabinet Office has made available<br>extra funding to cover the additional costs of Individual Electoral Registration. Such<br>funding will have assisted with the cost of any targeted canvassing of groups such as<br>those without a fixed address or overseas electors. However it is not possible to estimate<br>the specific costs of such activity.</p> more like this
