Annual canvass

We use the annual canvass to make sure that we include everyone who can vote on the electoral register. 

Every year, in July, we send a letter to each household in the District with details of everyone who has registered to vote.   

The letter has the Government's Your vote matters, don't lose it logo printed on the envelope. 

It is a chance for you to tell us if: 

  • someone has moved out 
  • someone has moved in 
  • someone's details have changed 
  • no one at the property is eligible to register 
  • the property is empty 

You must check the information and follow the instructions.

The letter tells you how to reply and update your information. It also includes a security code in case you decide to respond online, by text or by phone. 

If your name is not on the form, you are not registered. You can use the Government's register to vote service
