Every household in North Tyneside has received a Household Enquiry Form (HEF) as part of this year’s canvass of electors. We still need a response even if all the details are correct.
The 2017 canvass is due to finish – however, if you have not yet responded to your HEF you still have time to do so.
The easiest way to return your information is to respond via the HEF response website, text or phone. This means we don’t have to manually process a paper form and is a more effective use of resources. Full details on the different ways you can respond are included with your HEF.
If you have a query or need any help completing your HEF you can call our helpline on 0191 643 2270 or e mail email@example.com
The Annual Canvass of Electors
The Electoral Registration Officer (ERO) has a duty to maintain the Register of Electors.
The ERO is required by law to carry out a canvass of properties every year to keep the register up to date and accurate. The canvass allows us to check who lives at your address and who can register to vote. It gives residents the opportunity to confirm that the information held is correct and also allow us to collect new registrations.
Being registered to vote means, not only having a say in the local area and in who runs the country, but it could also improve your credit rating.
Anyone added to your HEF will still need to register individually to complete the process. They can do this quickly and easily on line at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
Publication of Electoral Register
The new register will be published on 1 December 2017. The deadline for receipt of new applications to register to be included on that register is 22 November 2017. The deadline for amendments to and removal of entries for this register is 30 November 2017.
