Annual Canvass

ANNUAL CANVAS FORM ERROR
Due to an error at our printers it has come to our attention that there has been a number of electoral forms posted with incorrect information. A number of the forms sent out do not indicate either where voters have opted out of the open register of electors, where the voter is over the age of 76, or where the voter has a postal vote. Apologies for any inconvenience caused, we are working hard to correct this. If you are affected by this you do not need to contact us as we will be sending you a letter with the correct information.

Annual Canvass

Each year the Electoral Registration Officer (ERO) must conduct an annual canvass to ensure the Register of Electors is accurate and complete.  It gives an opportunity for residents to tell us where there have been changes.

There have been changes this year so please check your forms carefully as there are three types of forms being sent, Canvass Communication A (CCA), Canvass Communication B (CCB) and the reminder Canvass Form (CF).

CCA (green form):

Form Sample

If you do not respond to your CCB we will send up to two reminder Canvass Forms (CF) white forms, either by post or email (if we have an email address for you).

If you do not respond to your reminder forms, a canvasser will either call you (if we have a phone number) or visit your home when it is safe to do so.

If you do not provide the requested information at all you can be fined up to £1,000.

Please note that completing any of the canvass forms does not mean you will be registered to vote.  New electors will need to individually register and we will send each person an Invitation to Register form (ITR). They must complete and return the form or register to vote online (https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote).
