As part of Burnley Council’s annual voter registration canvass, households in Burnley borough have received a form asking residents to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register for those living at their address is correct.
If you've checked the details and got back to us, either to confirm they are correct or to amend them, that's great.
If you haven't done this yet then please do as soon as possible, even if there are no changes to be made.
We will be visiting those households who haven't replied between now and 11th September to check on the details.
The aim of the Household Enquiry Form (HEF) 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.
People have to be on the electoral register in order to be able to vote in elections.
If the information on the form remains the same:
- Visit www.householdresponse.com/burnley
- Call 0800 1979871, or
- Text NOCHANGE, followed by both parts of your security code, to 80212 (standard charges apply)
If the details need updating or someone needs to be added or removed:
It’s particularly important that anyone who has moved address recently looks out for the form and checks whether they are registered.
The updated register of electors will be published in December.
Any residents who have any questions can contact the elections team at 01282 477261 or 477263.
The annual canvass is a statutory duty carried out by all councils across the country.
You can register to vote at any time of the year. It's quick and easy to do - all you need is your National Insurance number. Go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
