The electoral register is a record of people eligible to vote in any national or local election in the Island.
Residents are permitted to vote from the age of 16 but must be registered in order to do so.
Failure to register will result in loss of voting rights in any election or referendum that may be called during the period that the register is in force.
The electoral register is maintained by the Economic Affairs division of the Treasury at the registration unit.
