Every year, we have a statutory duty to confirm the details currently held on the electoral register. This is known as the ‘annual household canvass’.
Electoral registration household canvass
We follow the process outlined by the Electoral Commission. The government changed the process in 2020. This means that the forms that you receive will look slightly different to those used in previous years.
Questions and answers document for the new style guidance
- The forms are addressed to ‘The Occupier’ and not to an individual.
- An eligible resident that added to a form will also need to register. They can do this by going online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or we will then post out registration forms addressed to the individual.
