Electoral register checks

Tuesday 22 August

Let us know your details are up to date

Thousands of households in Swale are being asked to check their details on the electoral register are correct.

Swale Borough Council is writing to 53,578 households across the borough as part of the annual canvass to make sure the borough’s electoral register is up-to-date.

The homes will be sent a Household Enquiry Form (HEF) which lists those registered to vote at the property.

People simply need to confirm the details are correct, either online, by phone or by post, using the unique security codes on the form.

If someone is missing from the form they will need to register to vote – the easiest way is online.

The mail out will not include the 7,267 households who responded to the council’s eCanvass earlier in the summer.

To be included in the eCanvass next year, people need to simply enter their email address on the HEF and return it in the prepaid envelope, or respond online following the instructions on the form.

The council is legally required to compile an accurate and up to date register of electors each year. To save time and money it is helpful if people respond to the HEF as soon as possible, to avoid reminder letters being sent, and ultimately a house visit.
