Fill in voter form to avoid a home visit

Published: 27 October 2016

Households in Wandsworth that have not filled in their Household Enquiry Form will get a visit from council staff from this weekend to make sure they are registered to vote.

All households in the borough were sent the form in September.  This asks residents to confirm that the information held on the electoral register is correct at their address.

Non-responding households will be visited by an electoral services canvasser from this weekend.  The canvasser will collect the form from them or help them respond online or by phone or text.

If you have not yet responded to Electoral Services requests, do so now to prevent a visit. This will save council tax-payers’ money and ensure that every eligible resident is invited to register.

A by-election can be called at any time, meaning its always important that residents keep their voter registration up to date. 

Registering to vote means you can have your say in local and national elections, while being on the electoral register can also improve your credit score.  British, Irish, Commonwealth and European Union citizens can register.
