Wandsworth residents will shortly receive a form asking them to check that the information held on the electoral register is correct.

The Household Enquiry Form has been sent to households in the borough as part of the council’s annual electoral registration canvass. The aim is to make sure the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered to vote so that they can be encouraged to do so.

Some residents have already been contacted via text or email and asked to confirm their details online. If you have already done this, you will not be sent a form.

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. 

A response is required from every household, even if there are no changes to make or nobody is eligible to vote.

The easiest way to respond is online

If there are no changes to make, you can also confirm the details by phone, or send a text. Details of how to do this are on your form. People who are unable to use the response methods above can complete and return the Household Enquiry Form by post.

If no response is received, electoral registration canvassers will visit households, so residents are advised to respond promptly to avoid a visit.
