The Electoral Register lists the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote in public Elections and Referendums. The register is used for Electoral purposes, such as, making sure only eligible people can vote.
 

View the Electoral Register

The Electoral Register for Tameside is held at the new Tameside One building, within Ashton Library.

Members of the public are entitled to inspect the register of electors to check the accuracy of the register and primarily their entry in the register. Any information viewed cannot be used for any other purpose. Details from the full register must not be used for any commercial reason, and you cannot photograph or make copies.  The register of electors is not structured in a format to find a person by name.

Additionally, the law says you may view the register only under staff supervision, therefore, during our busiest times you may need to wait a short while until a member of resource staff is available to supervise the register inspection.

Open Register

The Open Register is an extract of the Electoral Register. The Open Register is not used for Elections or Referendums. It can be purchased by any person, company or organisation. It is used by business and credit reference agencies to confirm your name and address details.
Your name and address will be included in the open register unless you ask for them to be removed. Removing your details from the Open Register does not affect your right to vote.
 

Purchase the Electoral Register

If you wish to purchase a copy of the open register, you can order a copy online or by email at elections@tameside.gov.uk  Alternately, you can pay by cash or by cheque. Please email for more information. When ordering a copy, please state which ward or constituency you require so that an appropriate invoice can be generated.

Amending Details on the Register

If you would like to amend your name on the electoral register please email us on elections@tameside.gov.uk with a good quality photograph or copy of your change of name evidence. This will only amend your name on the electoral register.
If you have changed address, please register at your new address on the Gov.uk website. Please insert your previous address when prompted to ensure your details are transferred over.
