There was a special publication of an election register for East Brighton ward for use in the by-election. This is because the by-election was called before the new annual register for the city is published on 16 October 2012.
The register for the by-election included any names added or amendments made on a voter registration form received by the Electoral Registration Officer by 3 October 2012. However, under the special provisions for the by-election names deleted from the electoral register during the annual canvass process were not removed from the register for the by-election.
