Annual canvass of electors

Annual canvass of electors 2024

By law the Electoral Registration Officer is required to carry out an annual canvass of electors from 1st July to 30th November each year.

We will be getting in touch with every household to check that the electoral register is up to date, and to identify any residents who should be registered but are currently missing.

The Electoral Registration Officer will issue a form or letter to all households containing the names currently on the register at that address.  The communication will indicate if a response is required or not. Only respond if required to do so.

Canvass Communication A (CCA-S)

If the details shown on your Canvass Communication A are NOT up to date then all you have to do is send us the correct up to date details by any of the following methods:

Canvass Communication B (CCB-B-S or CCB-S) or Canvass Form (CF-B-S or CF-S)

If we have requested a response from your property (Canvass Communication B or Canvass Form) then all you have to do is to confirm this by any of the following methods:

  • By post – Canvass Form only: Complete the form and send it back to us
  • By email: to [email protected]

If we don’t receive a response, the law requires us to try and contact you by telephone or by calling at your house to collect the information. Please help us to avoid having to make a personal visit by responding to the Canvass Communication B or Canvass Form as soon as possible.
