25,000 reminders to be sent out over electoral register

  • Vote

Charnwood Borough Council will be delivering around 25,000 reminder forms to properties which have not responded to the annual check of voter details.

Every year the Council must check its electoral register is up to date and letters are sent to all households asking people to confirm the details or inform the Council of any changes.

So far, 47,000 people have responded to the letters, called household enquiry forms.

Geoff Parker, the Council’s Electoral Registration Officer, said: “Firstly I’d like to thank everyone who has already responded.

“For those who receive a reminder form, please ensure you reply to us either to confirm that the details are correct, or to let us know about changes such as people who have moved away or new people who need to be added to the voters register.

“Responses can be made by phone, online or by post using the pre-paid envelope provided.

“Details of 16 and 17-year-olds can also be added now so that they can vote as soon as they turn 18.

“It is a legal requirement to respond, and dealing with the form promptly will avoid us having to visit your property and door-knock to get the required details.”

The Electoral Registration Officer needs the information to be able to publish a complete and accurate Electoral Register on December 1 each year.

Having your details on the Electoral Register will:

  • allow you to be able to vote
  • improve your credit rating
  • make it easier to access council services
