Residents are being urged to look out for their electoral registration canvass form that will be arriving from Tuesday 22 August 2023.
The yearly exercise, carried out by Sevenoaks District Council, ensures the electoral register is up-to-date and gives an opportunity for residents who are not registered or whose details have changed to make sure they can vote in elections or referendums.
Dr Pav Ramewal, Chief Executive and Electoral Registration Officer at Sevenoaks District Council says:
“The Electoral Registration Annual Canvass is really important as it makes sure your details are correct and that no one misses out on their chance to vote in local or general elections. Most of the time, no action is needed but it’s important to read the form when it arrives and follow the instructions carefully.”
“If your details are incorrect, it’s really easy to update them. The best way to tell us is online or to send the form back to us.
“If you know you are not registered to vote, you can do it quickly online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote, or call us and we’ll send you an application form in the post.”
