Voter staff knock on doors
Published: Tuesday 30th September 14
Wandsworth residents who have yet to complete their voter registration forms will continue to receive visits from council staff in October.
Every registered elector has been sent a letter about their voter registration, letting them know if they needed to take action to register to vote under the new Individual Electoral Registration (IER) system. Most residents did not need to take any action.
Residents who do need to register and have not responded to this request may have already had a visit from a canvasser and will be visited again in October if they have not yet responded.
If you need to respond, you can do it online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. Alternatively complete the paper form you have been sent.
Failure to respond to this request could result in an £80 fine. Responding now will save your, and council tax payers’, money.
Anyone who has moved recently should visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote to register at their new address. Just informing the council of your move does not change your address on the electoral register.
There will be a general election on May 7, 2015. Make sure you keep your records with Electoral Services up to date to ensure you receive a poll card next spring.
