Electoral Register Binding- Before and After

This year we have had our most recent electoral registers bound with hardback covers. The electoral register (sometimes called the electoral roll) is a list of the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote in public elections. Electoral registers are heavily used by family and house historians and ours are currently only available to view in our searchroom.

The full electoral register is passed to us from Denbighshire County Council Electoral Services and we take care of the registers to ensure they are preserved and remain accessible long term.

When the register arrives with us, it is added to our catalogue and given a reference number. It arrives as an unbound bundle which we then send to be bound. Binding the registers means the pages cannot be rearranged when a researcher is viewing it and pages cannot be removed. The hard back cover also means the volume is more robust to ensure it is protected whilst in use for the years ahead.
