If you're not on the electoral register, you can't vote in elections. It’s your choice if you vote or not on Election Day, but if you're not registered, you don’t have that choice.

The electoral register is also often used to confirm an individual's address, especially by credit reference agencies when someone applies for credit, such as a mortgage, personal loan or even a mobile telephone. If you are not registered, you might be refused credit, as well as losing your right to a vote.
