What is the annual canvass?
The annual canvass takes place so we can make sure the electoral register is up to date. It helps us to find any residents who are not registered to vote, so that they can be encouraged to register. We can then remove the names of electors if they are no longer at an address.
The canvass has changed to make it easier for you to respond:
- we may use email or text messages to send you canvass communications, as an alternative to a paper form - this helps to save us money
- it is important that whatever communication you receive, you follow the instructions provided
If we are asking you to respond, please respond quickly to avoid:
- further communications from us
- a canvasser visit
