Look out for an important form

There are lots of ways you can respond.

Forms are being posted to over 122,000 households across Plymouth as part of the Council’s annual canvass, which checks the right people are registered to vote at each address.

The household enquiry form is sent to every household in the UK and it is a legal requirement to check that the details listed and respond – even if there are no changes to make.

Forms will be arriving from Saturday 20 July, but some voters will receive a text or email this week giving them chance to reply earlier online.

The information is collected to ensure the electoral register is up-to-date when it is published in December.

Tracey Lee, Electoral Registration Officer, said: “It’s really important to check the form when it arrives and either confirm or amend the details as soon as possible. Look out for a brown envelope with the Council logo, addressed to ‘the occupier’.

“The quickest and easiest way to respond is online at www.householdresponse.com/plymouth. If you’re not already on the electoral register, or you have recently moved house, you can sign up or change your details at the same time. It only takes a few minutes.

“You can also respond by text, phone or post – full details are on the form.”

Anyone who needs help with the form can visit 1st Stop in the city centre or a local library. More information is available at www.plymouth.gov.uk/vote.
