So you want to do an electoral roll search for free? Well this is possible but only if you are prepared to travel and have a lot of time spare.
To carry out an electoral roll search for free you must attend the council offices in the area you are searching (assuming you know the electoral area the person you are searching for lives in) and manually search the roll by supervised visit, ie you have to make an appointment. If the person you are searching for lives any distance from you or you don’t know the electoral area they are living in this is likely to be expensive.
The cheapest (we are talking a few pence per search) to search the electoral roll is to use online databases like the 192 version (click on the links on this page to start your search) A search this way can be carried out from the comfort of your home, takes a few seconds to complete and accesses electoral roll data from 2000 to 2012, and its FREE to try!
The full unedited version of the electoral roll that is used for voting and its
supply and use is limited by the law. Copies of the full electoral roll are available
to certain groups and individuals, such as credit reference agencies.
An edited version of the electoral roll, which does not have those people who have chosen to 'opt-out', can be searched by anyone for any purpose. This roll is easily searchable using online search facilities. There are no Free electoral Roll search sites available in the UK, but searching using the providers on this page only costs a few pence per search.
