What is the annual canvass?
Each year we carry out an annual canvass of all residents in the district to make sure the revised electoral register, which is published on 1 December, is as accurate as possible.
We will send a Canvass Communication form to all properties in the district. The form is not a registration form - it lists all current registered electors. Many households will be required to respond. Residents will be asked to confirm or change the information we hold for the property on the electoral register.
How do I respond?
You should respond as soon as possible if asked to do so or if you have any changes to make, in one of the following ways:
fill in the online form www.householdresponse.com/huntingdonshire or
call 0800 197 9871 or
text NO CHANGE followed by your security codes to 80212 or
complete and sign the form and return it using the pre-paid envelope.
Your security code is printed on the form. You will need this when complete the form online or by phone.
New electors aged 16 or over
If any new electors aged 16 or over are added to the Canvass Communication form they will receive a separate Invitation to Register form by email or post.
This form can be completed and returned using the pre-paid envelope provided or completed online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
You will need the following information when registering:
date of birth
National Insurance number
current (and, if appropriate, previous) address.
When registering you can also apply to vote by post or by proxy. Visit How to Vote for more information.
