Electoral Roll, 2010
- The number of local government electors in Wales increased 0.97 per cent from 2,280,200 on 1 December 2009 to 2,302,300 on 1 December 2010.
- The largest Assembly constituency is Cardiff South and Penarth with 75,200 electors and the smallest is Arfon with 41,100 electors.
A table showing National Assembly for Wales electors based on the Assembly constituencies has been published on StatsWales.
The tables of electoral statistics are derived from data supplied to ONS by Electoral Registration Officers at the end of December 2010. The electoral register represents the number of people who would be entitled to vote if an election had been held on 1 December 2010. It is based on the qualifying date of 15 October 2010.
Entitlement to vote for National Assembly for Wales and Local Government elections is slightly different from UK Parliament. Resident EU citizens are eligible to vote at Local Government and National Assembly for Wales elections but not at UK Parliament elections.
Electoral rolls provide counts of the number of people registered to vote. It should be noted that the number of people eligible to vote is not the same as the resident population aged 18 and over. There are numerous reasons for this. For example not everyone who is usually resident is entitled to vote (foreign citizens from outside of the EU and Commonwealth, prisoners, etc. are not eligible), some people do not register to vote and people who have more than one address may register in more than one place. Further, there is inevitably some double counting of the registered electorate as electoral registration officers vary in how quickly they remove people from the registers after they have moved away from an area or after they have died. These factors have a differential impact from area to area. This means care needs to be exercised when comparing population estimates with electoral roll.
