Annual Canvass of Households 2018

Every year we are required by law to send a 'Household Enquiry Form' to every household to ensure that the Electoral Register is kept up to date. Every household has a legal responsibility to respond to this form.

Please remember that you must respond, whether there is a change or not.

Initial paper forms will be posted out mid August and residents are invited to respond via the methods outlined on the first page of the form as soon as they receive it.

Reminder forms will be posted out mid-September if we have not received any response from the initial forms.

Any Rother District household which has not responded will be visited by one of our door to door canvassers with a final reminder. This will be from mid October and this year, some canvassers will be collecting the household details on electronic tablets rather than the traditional paper form. 

All canvassers will be wearing a Rother District Council identity badge and have an official appointment letter. If the canvassers are unable to make contact with the household they will leave a calling card to encourage residents to respond.

This will be the final chance for electors to be included in the revised Electoral Register which will be published on 1 December 2018.

If you have a query about the Household Enquiry Form please complete the Election form below.
