There is a wide-ranging evidence base on electoral registration. This includes the completeness and accuracy studies conducted by the Electoral Commission as well as academic and other research. I have also collected a large amount of evidence from the meetings and roundtable discussions I have held over recent months as part of my Every Voice Matters tour. Our forthcoming democratic engagement plan, to be published later in December 2017, will set out some of the evidence we have gathered as well as our plans for future action.
