Annual electoral register canvass

We seek to ensure that all Westminster residents who are eligible to vote appear on the register of electors.

Reasons to register

There are many reasons to register including:

  • to participate in elections and referendums and therefore influence those who make the decisions that affect you on a daily basis
  • it may be harder to obtain credit, mortgages, loans and so on if you don’t register - the electoral register is one piece of evidence used by the financial services industry when authorising applications
  • a quick response from you saves you and the council money, as the council won't have to contact you again
  • refusing to provide the relevant information may lead to a fine - providing false information is an offence.
