Electoral Roll Information

The Electoral Roll is a list maintained by your Local Authority of everyone who is entitled to vote in elections, and their addresses. Information on the electoral roll is passed to the credit reference agencies and used by lenders to confirm names and addresses, determine length of residence and to distinguish between members of the same family. If you have not registered to appear on the electoral roll, this can adversely affect your ability to obtain credit.

How Long is This Data Held on Your Credit Report?

Information found on the electoral roll will remain on your credit report indefinitely.
