Carlisle Electoral Register Archives

There are two versions of the electoral register. White Pages offers you access to over a decade’s worth of information from the edited version of the electoral register. However, people do have the option to opt out of this version.

The full version of the register is therefore a useful tool in a people search. You can view copies of the full electoral register under supervision at the British Library or specified official venues.

In Carlisle, you can view the full electoral register at:

Customer Services
Civic Centre

You can inspect the register, under supervision, during normal office hours (Monday to Thursday - 9.00am to 5.00pm; Friday - 9.00am to 4.00pm).

Therefore if you’re looking from someone from the Border Rural District, from before it became a part of the City of Carlisle, the records may not be held at the address listed above.
