The electoral registration officer has to prepare and publish a new register of electors every year.
In previous years we sent a canvass form to every residential address to find out whether any changes needed to be made since the last register publication.
We removed the details of electors who had moved out and added the details of new potential electors. The process has now changed and households will not all receive the same form.
Electors successfully matched against government held records and our held records will receive a confirmation of registration letter, rather than the canvass form of previous years.
Any household not matched by local and government records, will be sent an ordinary household canvass form which they are legally required to respond to.
The new register of electors will be published on 1 December 2023.
