The electoral register

Credit checks and the electoral register

We have to supply copies of the full electoral register to credit reference agencies. 

We have to make your details available to credit reference agencies, even if you have opted out. 

Credit reference agencies use the electoral register as part of their checking process. 

If you’re not on the electoral register, it may have a negative effect on your credit score. 

You must register to vote to appear on the electoral register. You don’t have to vote after you have registered. 

You can contact us to check if you are on the electoral register. We can’t contact credit reference agencies for you.
