Some crowdsourcing please: how many people have just joined the register in your area?

Early signs are that as many as 500,000 – 750,000 people rushed to join the electoral register just before the registration deadline earlier this week – hopefully reflecting a surge in interest in politics, particularly from younger people.

The evidence though is rather thin at the moment, so a simple request – check with your council how many people have joined the register in the latest rolling register update and post the answer below.

(If you’re an agent or campaign manager, remember that you can ask to get these names and addresses – which if you are doing any addressed election material is well worth doing so that you don’t leave out people who have shown an interest in democracy.)

    According to the Head of Electoral Services, in Bristol the figure was 13,000 new voters, an extra 3% to bring the total registration figure up to 94%.. The biggest upsurge was after the first debate.

    The returning officer tell me that the borough of Kingston has over 2,000 new voter registrations since the start of the month – many in the past week. That covers the whole of Kingston and Surbiton Constituency and the four north Kingston wards that form part of Richmond Park. Full registration details will be published on Weds 28th.
