Electoral Canvassing

Good afternoon, it is that time of year again when we will be sending out canvassers to all properties within the council area who are required but have not yet returned a Canvass Form with regard to Electoral Registration.
This is an annual process.  The Canvassers will be trying to make contact with those households who have not supplied information that we have requested under Electoral Registration legislation.
We will be advising the police and ward members that they will be calling on properties but also wanted to inform you in case you have any contact from concerned residents.  The canvassers will be carrying ID and will be delivering forms and not taking information at the doorstep, unless it is offered to them.
This statutory process needs to be completed in advance of publishing the new Electoral Register on the 1st December.  We will also carry out some social media to inform residents.
Kind Regards
