Households across Hertsmere are being asked to check the information that appears about them on the electoral register as part of our annual canvass.
Forms are being sent by the council to all 43,000 residential addresses in the borough to make sure the electoral register is up to date, identify any residents who are not registered and to encourage them to do so.
Jo Bateman, Principal Electoral Services Officer, said: “Anyone that wants to vote must be registered. To make sure you are able to have your say, simply check the form when it arrives and respond online following the instructions or return it to us as promptly as possible.”
It’s particularly important that anyone who has moved address recently looks out for the form and checks whether they are registered. Research by the independent Electoral Commission indicates that across Great Britain, recent home movers are far less likely to be registered than those that have lived at the same address for a long time.
Any residents who have any questions can contact the elections team on email or by calling 020 8207 7481.
