Annual check of the electoral register (HEF form)

Every August we are required to carry out an annual canvass of the electoral register. We send a Household Enquiry Form (HEF) to every household in the district. This form lists everyone currently registered to vote at the property. It's a legal requirement to respond to the HEF - even if there's no change to the information.

To save us sending costly reminders, we ask everyone to respond as soon possible to:

  • confirm that the details of those people living at your address and registered to vote are correct
  • tell us about anyone new (including anyone aged 16 or 17)
  • delete anyone no longer living at the address
  • inform us there are no changes.

To register someone whose name is not printed on the form or if you've changed your name, you'll need to register to vote on the government website. You'll need your/their date of birth and National Insurance number to hand.
