Annual Canvass 2017

From Friday 6 October we will begin a personal canvass of households that have not yet returned their Household Enquiry Form. This is the form that asks you to confirm the people who are currently living at the address and registered to vote at that property.

Canvassers will be visiting properties that have not yet returned the forms to remind people to do so. Please DO NOT IGNORE this form it is an important form and must be completed.

HOW TO RESPOND

If there are changes that need to be made to the details on the form, the quickest and easiest way is to go online. You will need to enter part 1 and part 2 of your security code which can be found on the front of your form. You can add and remove people online and make sure the people listed are correct.

If any new people are added to the form they must also register to vote themselves, the quickest and easiest way is to go to www.gov.uk/registertovote - you will need your National Insurance Number and Date of Birth to register.

If there are NO changes to make you still need to let us know!

Go online to confirm that there are no changes, all you will need to enter is part 1 and part 2 of your security code which can be found on the front of your form. Alternatively you can call 0800 197 9871 and when prompted enter Part 1 and Part 2 of your security code which can be found on the front of your form OR text NOCHANGE followed by both parts of your security code to 80212 (if nobody is eligible to vote include a reason after your security code e.g. empty, business, 2nd home, other).  Alternatively you can complete the paper form and post it back to us in the envelope provided.

If you don't respond promptly we will send out a reminder form. If we don't receive a response after sending a reminder we will carry out a personal visit to ensure we get a response.

Legal requirement

It is a legal requirement for the information requested in the household form to be provided. If you do not give the information asked for in this form you could face a fine of up to £1000.
