We are committed to building on the successful introduction of online registration - now used by more than 30 million citizens - to ensure that everyone eligible to take part in our democracy can do so. Before Christmas, we will publish our democratic engagement plan, setting out evidence on levels of electoral registration across the country and our intended steps for maximising registration.
