Feedback on Anonymous Voter Registration

The Government have produced a Policy Statement on ‘Anonymous Registration’ for domestic abuse survivors and are welcoming feedback. You can read the document by clicking here. They are specifically interested in feedback on the following questions:

  • Should health professionals be added to the list of qualified attestors? If so, which health professionals should be added to the list?
  • Should domestic abuse refuge managers be added to the list of qualified attestors? If so, should there be a direct connection between an applicant and that refuge?
  • How should domestic abuse refuges be defined in order to capture all appropriate organisations?
  • Should the requirement that court orders used as evidence must be live at the time of application be removed and, if so, should it be replaced with a time limit on the use of spent court orders?

Feedback should be sent by Friday 26 May 2017 to or by post to:

Electoral Registration and Franchise Team, Cabinet Office, 4th Floor Orange Zone, 1 Horse Guards Road, London, SW1A 2HQ
