The Register of Electors

The Register of Electors is a list of the people who are registered to vote. To be able to vote in local and national elections you will need to be on the Register of Electors.

Annual Canvass

If you have recently received a letter from us and wanting more information on what you need to do next, please read the information on "Write Out and Annual Canvass" before contacting us as the information here may answer your query.

If you want to opt out of the open register please phone 0800 197 2327 (you will need your security code on the bottom of your confirmation letter) or enter your details on this on-line form


The Electoral Services Office carries out an annual canvass of the residents of Conwy County Borough Council. If you miss the canvass don't worry as you can register to vote at any time throughout the year.

All members of the household that are eligible to vote have to register individually and this can be done on-line on If you require a paper copy, please contact the office on or 01492 576051/2. For more information on how to register to vote please see the "How to Register to Vote" page.

Do not assume that you are registered to vote because you pay council tax at your home, or that you have told council tax that you have moved.

There are two versions of the Register of Electors, the electoral register (formally known as the full register) and the open register (formally known as the edited register). More information about each of these can be found in "The Electoral Register and Open Register" section.

On the 10 June 2014 there was a national change to how people could add themselves to the Register of Electors.  Everyone now has to register individually, and more information about the changes can be found on the "Individual Electoral Registration" page.
