Confirmation of Voter Registration 2018

We have sent “Confirmation of Voter Registration 2018” letters (also called Household Notification Letters) to all residential addresses in the borough to confirm who appears on the electoral register at each address. 

This will help residents to ensure that the correct information is on the electoral register for the Borough Council Elections taking place on Thursday 3 May 2018 and any other election or referendum that may be called. 

Most households will not need to do anything; however, if there are changes to be made, please follow the instructions on the letter. If the information is correct, no further action is required.

You cannot be added to the electoral register without completing an individual registration application. If you have told us you are resident at an address, you should complete an application at

How to add your name to the register 

If your name does not appear on the letter, you should register to vote immediately, as the process can take several weeks. Find out more about registering to vote.

How to remove a name from the register 

Visit and follow the instructions (you will need to use Part 1 and Part 2 of the security code printed on the letter). Please note that we require two sources of information to confirm that someone no longer lives at an address. As such we may need to carry out a 'review' process to completely remove their name from the electoral register.

Let us know if you have moved

You should apply to register to vote at your new address as soon as you move. When completing your application, please ensure that you provide your previous address when prompted so that your name can be removed from the register at that address.
