Paragraph 64
64.  The Electoral Fraud (Northern Ireland) Act 2002 substituted the system of household registration in force until that moment[34] with an individual registration system, whereby eligible electors have to complete an individual registration form on an annual basis. There was not, then, an automatic system for first registration nor for re-registering each year on the basis of the register of the previous year, but it was necessary both for people never being registered and for people already registered to complete annually a registration form and present it to the electoral office.
