16 May Data reveals Colchester has increase in Electoral Roll registration
For a British citizen to have a say in the outcome of the snap General Election next month, they must be on the electoral register for their local authority.
Being able to vote is the primary purpose for being on the electoral register, but it can also affect so much more of day to day life – from buying a house to signing up for a mobile phone.
The good news is that data from credit information provider, Equifax, suggests that more British citizens have registered to vote in 2017, compared to the previous year.
New Equifax data reveals that top of the list of authorities that have recorded the highest increase in voters is Colchester, Essex, which saw an 8.54% uplift, closely followed by Tower Hamlets at 8.09%. A total of 336 authorities saw an increase in voters in the 2016 Electoral Roll registration.
