From 1 June 2007 persons at risk from stalking or domestic violence can apply to their local authority in England and Wales to be registered anonymously while still being able to vote. The new regulations have been produced with guidance from organisations such as Victim Support and Rights of Women. There are strict criteria for registration. Anyone wanting to register their details anonymously must provide evidence such as an order under the Family Law Act 1996 or the Protection from Harassment Act 1997. If an application is granted, the details that appear on the register only have a person's electoral number and the letter N. For full details of the effects of the Electoral Administration Act see http://www.dca.gov.uk/legist/electadmin.htm.
