In order to be able to vote in any election or referendum you must be registered.
We are currently carrying out the annual voter registration canvass. Forms were hand delivered to every household in the borough in July asking residents to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register for those living at their address is correct.
The aim of the form is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so.
Those households that didn’t confirm or amend the details on the form will be visited before 14th September to make sure the information is up-to-date.
Residents are reminded they don’t have to wait for a visit to respond.
To respond please make a note of your security code and choose ONE of the options below:
