Annual Canvass 2023

Each year, the Electoral Registration Officer (ERO) must check the information held on the Electoral Register. This is to make sure they are ready to publish next year's register. This is known as the annual canvass. 

The Register of Electors 2024 will be published on 1 December 2023. The 2023 annual canvass will begin in the week commencing 4 September. Residents in the district will be contacted by the Council to make sure that they are registered. 

You may be contacted by letter, email or phone call. When contacted, residents will need to check their household information and respond as required. 

This will ensure that the Council can keep the electoral register up to date and identify any residents who are not yet registered. Recent home movers, in particular, are urged to check their details.

If you receive a letter or email, the quickest and easiest way to respond is online here. Security codes are provided in the letter/email. Responding online will only take a few minutes and you can update the details for your full household.

For further help, you can contact Electoral Services on 01924 305023.

Some people may need to provide more information to complete their voter registration. This can include national insurance number and date of birth. We will contact anyone who needs to do this. 
Local and Mayoral elections will take place on 2 May 2024. It is important to ensure your registration is correct so that you can vote next May.
