More in depth Electoral register information

The electoral register for the UK is similar to the registers in other nations and legal systems. It was the UK that first came up with the idea of ballot boxes and voting booths. The electoral system in the UK allows people to vote for the major political parties and political figures of the UK. 


Many people, who live in the UK, would know about the requirements for voting for politicians in The House Of Commons and Parliament. Here is how the electoral register system in UK works, from registration to voters.

First-Past-The-Post

The first-past-the-post method of voting in elections in UK is one of the more recent things to happen in the field of electoral voting. This system is used for electing the local representatives to the House Of Commons in the counties of England and Wales. The voters are required identify their preferences for the political candidates on a common ballot paper.


They then post the ticked ballot paper into the ballot boxes. The votes that each political candidate receives are then counted and the candidates with the most votes are elected to political office by the voters of each particular registered area. 

The Supplementary Vote

This is another system of voting for political electorates. This electorate system is used for electing mayors and governors in England and Wales. Procedure: The voters are given full-fledged lists of the major candidates for the posts of mayor. They are then asked to list down their first and secondry preferences among the  candidates in the full list.The candidates who occupy more than 50 percent of the first preferences will be chosen as mayors of the constituencies.

Alternative Votes

The alternative voting system is  a relatively new system of the United kingdom electoral register. The candidates are those hoping for the top positions in the House Of Commons.  Voters are given lists of candidates and electorates. Then, they are asked to tick a single name as first preference and then other names as secondry preferences, in order of preference. The first choices are then tallied and the alternatives are also counted among the electorates and voters. This system is used to choose new members of the House Of Commons systems and departments.


Single Transferable Vote

The single transferable voting system  is utilised in electing the Deputy Speakers in the House Of Commons. The Deputy Speakers are selected using a single transferable voting system which once again involves the prefered candidates. The voters are given lists of candidates for the posts of the Deputy Speakers of the House.
