Annual canvass and Household Notification Letters

Annual canvass and Household Enquiry Form

Each Autumn, we send a Household Enquiry Form to all properties in the district to check who is eligible to register to vote. By law you must respond to this form – we ask that people do this online via

A revised Electoral Register is then published in December.

If you don’t respond to this form, we will send you reminder notices and you could also receive a visit from a member of our staff who will ask you to confirm the details.

In the Spring we then send another letter to confirm that the details are still up to date.  At this stage we only need to hear back from people whose information is incorrect.

If you have questions about the annual canvass or household enquiry form please contact our Elections team.
