The electoral register

View the electoral register

The electoral register and monthly updates are available for public inspection at Riverside Library at Riverside House, Main Street, Rotherham S60 1AE.

As inspections need to be supervised by a member of staff, you will need to make an appointment by contacting the library on 01709 336774 or email

The library is open Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5.30pm

When inspecting the electoral register:

  • your inspection will be supervised by a member of staff
  • You may only make handwritten notes; any other form of copying the information is not permitted in law
  • Any information noted can only be used for direct marketing purposes if it’s also in the open version of the register; you’ll need to contact us to check this.

Failure to observe the above conditions would be classed as a criminal offence under the Representation of the People (England and Wales) Regulations 2001 (as amended). The penalty is an unlimited fine.

Historical registers

Once a new register is published, the previous version of the register is no longer available for public inspection for 10 years.

After a 10 year period has elapsed, historical copies of the full electoral register are available for unsupervised inspection at The British Library and at:
