Annual canvass for Dartford begins!
Last Updated: 20 Jul 2017 4:10pm
Households in the Borough of Dartford are being sent letters as part of the Annual Canvass of Electors, which is undertaken to ensure the Electoral Register is complete and accurate.
From the 21 July 2017 every household in Dartford will a form called a Household Enquiry Form (HEF) from the Borough's Elections Office which will have the details of all those currently registered to vote.
Residents are asked to check the details of the people who are currently registered to vote. If all the details on the form are correct you can use the text, phone or online service to respond to the form. If you respond by one of these methods you don't need to return the paper form, this helps save money by reducing the Council's postage costs.
If the details are wrong, for example someone has moved out or you have recently moved in, you need to make the changes and let the Council know. If you have access to the internet you can make the changes online by following the instructions on the form.
If you do not respond to the HEF the Council is required, by law, to send reminders. Please help the Council to save money by responding as soon as possible. If a household does not respond to any of the HEF forms the Council must send a canvasser to visit the property. Completion of the HEF is a legal requirement and failure to provide the information could lead to a fine.
