Look out for your letter and respond to Household Canvass
As part of Southend-on-Sea Borough Council’s annual voter registration canvass households will soon be receiving a form. It will ask them to check whether information on the electoral register for those living at their address is correct.
The aim of the form is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so.
Alison Griffin, chief executive of Southend-on-Sea Borough Council said: “To vote in any election, residents must be registered on the electoral roll and the household canvass is part of ensuring we have up to date information. To make sure you are able to have your say, simply check the form when it arrives, carefully read the instructions and respond as promptly as possible.
“It is important that anyone who has recently moved address looks out for the form and checks whether they are registered.
This year householders can respond to their form online, by text message, or by telephone. Full details of how to do this are on the front page of the form.
