Time running out to return your household voter form
Published: Tuesday 13th December 16
More than three quarters of households in Wandsworth have now responded to their annual voter canvass form. Those who have not yet responded are being encouraged to do so now to avoid any further visits from council staff.
Non-responders are in breach of the law and could be fined up to £1000. A form must be returned from each address even if the information has not changed or there are no eligible voters.
By responding to the Household Enquiry Form, you are ensuring that the information on the electoral register is accurate, and that all those who are eligible to vote are able to do so at any elections that may take place next year.
Out of date information on the electoral register can also have an impact on your credit score.
Anyone who has recently moved or knows that they are not registered should also visit gov.uk/register-to-vote and complete an application to register (you will still need to complete any outstanding Household Enquiry Form if you have one).
British, Irish, Commonwealth and EU citizens over the age of 16 are eligible to register.
