The household canvass 2021
Every year we write to you to check who lives in your household. We use this information to update our Register of Electors to make sure everyone who is eligible to vote is able to. The is called the annual household canvass.
Most people will not need to respond to a letter from us if the information we hold for their household is correct.
The most important thing is that you read the letter we send you very carefully. The letter will tell you whether you need to respond or not.
All households will receive a letter at the beginning of August which will show the names of the people who live in their home.
Please read this letter carefully.
If the list of people who live in your home is correct, you do not need to do anything. The letter will state this clearly at the top.
If the list of people who live in your household is wrong, you need to let us know. You will be able to do this online or by phone. There will not be a letter for you to return to the council.
If your letter states you must respond, please make sure you do - whether the information we hold for your household is correct or not.
You will be able to respond to confirm or change your household details online, by text, by phone or by returning the form by post.
If you do not respond to this letter, we will send a reminder. If you still do not respond, we will call you to make sure you respond.
If you do not respond to this letter, we will send a reminder. If you still do not respond, we will call you to make sure you respond or we may send a canvasser to your address.
