Wandsworth households have been sent a form asking them to check that the information held about them on the electoral register is correct.
A Household Enquiry Form is being sent to all households in the borough as part of the council’s annual electoral registration canvass. The aim is to make sure the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered to vote so that they can be encouraged to do so.
Elections can be called at short notice, as was the case with the general election in June 2017.
Registering to vote means you can have your say in local and national elections, while being on the electoral register can also improve your credit score.
A response is required from every household, even if there are no changes to make or nobody is eligible to vote.
The easiest way to respond is online at www.householdresponse.com/wandsworth
If there are no changes to make, you can also confirm the details by phone or send a text. Details of how to do this are on your form. Using these methods is quick and easy, and helps save council taxpayers' money.
People who are unable to use the response methods above can complete and return the Household Enquiry Form using the reply envelope provided (postage is free).
If no response is received, electoral registration canvassers will visit households, so residents are advised to respond promptly to avoid a visit.
