What is the Annual Canvass?
Each year every household in the UK is sent a form to check the right people are registered to vote.
When you receive your form, read it carefully as it will tell you what you need to do. It may look like a council circular or piece of junk mail, but don't ignore it. If you continue to ignore it and all the reminders you could be fined up to £1,000.
Respond before the deadline of 22nd November 2020.
If the details printed on your form are incorrect, you must contact us so that we can update our records.
What is a Canvass Form?
It's a form sent to households in the UK to check whether the voter registration records for your property are correct. It's posted out between July and November each year (the exact date varies). The form lists the current eligible voters in your household and asks you to check and update the details.
You need to check this information carefully. By law, if any of the details are incorrect you need to contact us straight away so that we can update our records.
If we send you a Canvass From, you must respond by the deadline. The quickest way is online, but you can also respond by phone or by posting your completed form back to the council.
If everything is correct you only need to confirm the details. If, however, you need to make any changes, you can do this online or you can send the form back.
We need to receive your response by 22nd November 2020 or you risk a £1,000 fine.
If you don’t respond, we may send you a reminder form. We may also contact you or other people in your household by email or phone if we have contact details and in some cases canvassers will also visit households that haven't replied.
If you haven’t received a form and it's getting close to the end-of November deadline, please contact Kettering Borough Council to explain that you haven't received one.
If you've missed the deadline, you need to contact us straight away.
