Annual Canvass of Electors 2016 to vote

Households in Angus and Perth & Kinross will soon be receiving a form asking residents to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register for those living at their address is correct as part of the annual voter registration canvass.

A Household Enquiry Form will be posted to all households across Angus and Perth & Kinross on 29 July.

The aim of the Household Enquiry Form is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encoraged to do so.

With Scottish Local Government elections taking place on 4 May 2017, this is an opportunity for residents to make sure that when elections take place they will be able to take part.

Those who are aged 16 or over on 4 May 2017 may be able to vote at this election and the Electoral Registration Officer for Angus Council and Perth & Kinross Council will also be encouraging those eligible to vote for the first time to register to vote.

Householders will have the option to simply respond online, by telephone or by text. You can also complete and return the form in the pre-paid envelope provided.

Non-responders will be sent a reminder and from October, will receive a visit to assist completion of the form.

The canvass will end when the revised electoral register is published on 1 December 2016.
