Reminder to return household enquiry forms

Just over half of Plymouth’s households have responded so far in our annual electoral canvass.

The canvass checks the right people are registered to vote at each address and forms were posted to over 100,000 households across Plymouth in August.

It is a legal requirement to check the details listed and respond – even if there are no changes to make. This will ensure the electoral register is up-to-date when it is published in December.

Council Chief Executive Tracey Lee said: “It’s really important to check the form and either confirm or amend the details as soon as possible. The quickest and easiest way to respond is online.

“The more responses we get now, the fewer personal visits we will have to make to chase this information up.

“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 included with the form. It’s really important that everyone who is entitled to vote is able to.”

If you need any help with your form you can drop in at the city centre 1st Stop or a local library. If you have any questions or have lost your form call our electoral services team on 304866 or 304936. More information is available on our voting and elections pages.
