Survivors of domestic abuse now able to vote anonymously

By March 9, 2018National News

The Houses of Parliament have passed government proposals for changes to anonymous voter registration.

The changes will make it easier for an estimated 12,000 survivors of domestic abuse living in refuges to register to vote anonymously as well as those living elsewhere.

The changes will come into force in England, Wales and Northern Ireland today (7 March) and in Scotland on 1 April.

Survivors of domestic abuse will be able to register to vote without their name and address appearing on the electoral roll and without the fear of their former partners finding their address.
