lasts for 12 months from the day the anonymous entry is first made on the register.

The system:
   is available to people where, if their name or address was listed on the
      electoral register, they believe their safety would be at risk. It is also for
      others in the same household as those at risk.
   is suitable for people escaping from domestic violence or for people where
      their occupation would mean they must keep their identity private.
   will allow people to vote in person, by post or via a proxy without the fear of
      their identity or address or that of anyone in their household being made
      public.
