Residents are urged to look out for voter registration forms

Published on Tuesday, 30th July 2019

Residents living in the Maldon District will have received a form in the post asking them to check and update the information that appears on the electoral register.

Maldon District Council is asking residents in the District to look out for the form and to update and return it as soon as possible.

The ‘Household Enquiry Form’ ensures that the Council can keep the electoral register up to date and helps to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so. To help everyone with this process, there are four options for returning the information: by post, telephone, SMS or Internet.

People who have moved to a new home recently are particularly encouraged to look out for the form and to check and return it. The form will ensure that those residents are correctly listed on the electoral register and are able to have their say.

There’s lots of helpful information about registering to vote, and why it is important, on the website www.yourvotematters.co.uk

Councillor Bryan Harker, Chairman of Finance and Corporate Services Committee said: “Returning the Household Enquiry Form with the relevant details for your home ensures that the electoral register is correct and that householders can have their say at elections. I would like to encourage all residents to respond as soon as possible, so we can make sure we have the right details on the electoral register for every address in the District.”

To make sure your details are correct on the electoral register, simply check the form and respond as soon as you can. Instead of responding by post, you have the options of responding by telephone, the Internet or SMS, all of which are easy to use.

Any residents who have any questions about the form or the process can contact their local registration team at elections@maldon.gov.uk
