Household Canvass


Households across the borough will have received a form asking them to check whether the information we hold on the register of electors is correct. This also helps to identify any residents who are not registered to vote so that they can be encouraged to do so. Please respond to your form promptly, even if there are no changes to be made.

There are four ways to do this:

  • Online – please follow the instructions on your form
  • Automated service – please follow the instruction on your form
  • Telephone – call Southend-on-Sea Electoral Services on 01702 215010
  • By Post – Complete and return your form by post

Please note that anyone that you add to the names already printed on your form will not be registered to vote and will need to register by visiting This is because the household enquiry form is not an electoral registration form.

If they do not register we will write to those individuals separately to remind them to do so.

Please note that you are required by law to respond.
