I have Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK. Am I permitted to register with the UK electoral roll if I am not yet a British citizen?

Am I required? Would I instead be prevented from registering due to not holding a British passport? I've done quite a bit of searching for this answer, but perhaps not in the right direction. From what I gather, I'm not permitted to vote in UK elections if I only hold ILR. However, being registered with the electoral roll seems to be directly tied to credit eligibility. Am I meant to register just for registrations sake and yet not vote?
Thanks in advance to any MeFites that can help with this conundrum.
