The 'Annual Canvass' is underway - don't lose your right to vote!

Blaby residents are being asked to check that details on the Household Enquiry Form - soon to be delivered across the District - are correct.

The Electoral Registration Officer is required to carry out an annual check of who should be registered to vote.

Every home will be receiving a form asking residents to ensure that the information on the electoral register for the address is up to date.

Forms will be delivered to homes from today (Friday 11 August).

Residents who have recently changed address are urged to look out for the form to check whether they are registered. Being on the Electoral Register is important not just for voting and keeping the register up to date, but may also affect a person's ability to access credit facilities.

Do it 'online'

The quickest and easiest way to confirm details are correct or to make changes is to visit www.householdresponse.com/blaby, using the security codes printed on the letter. If all details are correct residents can also call 0800 197 9871 or text 80212 to confirm.

Anyone who is new to the property or who has turned 16 should also register to vote at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.

For more information contact the Electoral Services Team at electoral@blaby.gov.uk or 0116 272 7560 during office hours.
