Annual Canvass 2019

Last Modified November 07, 2019

Each year we update the register of electors. This is called the annual canvass. It usually takes place between July and November. By law we must send a Household Enquiry Form to every residential property in Hertsmere. The aim of this form is to make sure that the information we hold on the current electoral register is up to date. It also helps us to identify any residents who are not registered to vote so that we can invite them to apply.

Due to the General Election being called for the 12 December 2019 the register was republished on the 5 November 2019 and forms can no longer be submitted electronically.

The form needs to be completed even if there are no changes to make.  The Household Enquiry form can be posted back until the 22 November 2019.

This form is not a registration form. If you have recently registered but your details do not appear on the Household Enquiry form, you will still need to complete and return the form.  If you are not registered the quickest and easiest way to do it is online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

If you’re not currently registered to vote you have until the 26 November 2019.


Where we recieve a Household Enquiry Form we will send you information explaining how to register, however any applications received after the 26 November 2019 will be unable to vote in the General Election.

Residents who have questions can contact the elections team by email at elections@hertsmere.gov.uk or by telephoning 020 8207 7481.
