Once a year we contact every household in the city to make sure everyone who can vote (eligible) is registered to vote.
It’s something we must do by law. Being on the Register of Electors means that you can vote in future elections or referendums.
Credit companies also use the register as part of their checks on your credit history when you apply for a mortgage, bank loan, mobile phone contract or car hire purchase.
That’s two very good reasons to make sure you and everyone in your household who can vote is registered.
We start by sending a form to every property in the city. The Household Enquiry Form (HEF) asks for information about everyone living in that property who is eligible to vote.
Please take a moment to check the information.
For any of the above options you can return the form in the pre-paid envelope provided or respond online, by telephone or text (details are on the form.)
Household enquiry form sent to all properties in the city. Please help save council money by replying promptly and avoid us having to send reminders or follow up.

One of our canvassers will visit each property which has not responded.
