The edited electoral roll should be an opt-in

Comment 1st July 2010

People who register to vote should be left out of the edited electoral register by default unless they indicate so.

Why does this matter?

Many people resent direct marketing and junk mail these days and some people unwittingly end up on junk mailing lists because they forgot to tick the box asking to be left out of the edited register. The idea I propose is that people who register to vote should explicitly ask to be included the edited electoral register (that is available for any use), rather than the other way round. It is quite a small move, but it would reduce unsolicited mail further.
