Hi all,

 

 

Does anyone know whether case officers check Electoral Register against addresses and whether any discrepancy would be any problem when applying for naturalisation?

Yes, as it's a legal requirement to be registered at the address where you are residing. 

 Registration is mandatory pursuant to Section 23 of the Representation of the People (England and Wales) Regulations2001 and violators are liable on summary conviction and face a maximum fine of £1,000

I think its not manadotory. My wife applied for naturalisation and got it. She was not registered to vote in that address where she applied. Its advisable to be registered.

This is from the official Gov.uk website. Although the fine for non-registration or false registration currently stands at £1,000 the intention is to reduce the criminal offence to a lesser one in the new regulations due to be introduced at the end of 2015.

Quote " Under the current system, failure to respond to a household canvass or not provide information to an Electoral Registration Officer (ERO) is a criminal offence punishable by a £1000 fine and which leaves you with a criminal record."
