Annual Canvass

Every year, we must write to or visit every home in the District to make sure people are registered to vote.

First we send each home a 'Household Enquiry Form'. Please reply to the form to tell us all the details we have are right or if changes need to be made.

If changes need to be made or people need to be added to the register to vote, we will send each person an 'Invitation to Register' form. To be registered to vote, you must complete and return this form or register to vote online.

If you do not respond to these forms, a canvasser will visit your home. The canvasser is a person who works for us and is required to ask you respond to our forms. They will be able to offer you advice to help you complete the forms if you are unsure what to do.
