Everyone who is registered to vote

The electoral register lists the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote. It’s used for electoral and other purposes specified in the law, specifically:

  • detecting crime such as fraud
  • calling people for jury service
  • checking credit application

The Annual Canvass of Electors

The annual canvass begins at the end of August, Household Enquiry Forms (HEF) will be sent to ALL residential households from 21 August 2019, arriving on door mats a few days later (via the postman) and ends on 25th November 2019.

Anyone registering to vote during that time will not go onto the Electoral Register until 1st December when we published the Revised Register – this is a statutory date.

The HEF form lists the electors we currently have – as of 1st August, on the Electoral Register. The purpose of the form is to check those electors are still living at the property, find out if electors have moved in or moved out, make changes to names.

THE HEF FORM IS NOT A REGISTRATION FORM (see below for registering to vote)

For further information on completing the form, making changes or removing someone click here:  Household Enquiry Form

It can be bought by any person, company or organisation. For example, companies and charities use it to confirm names and addresses.
