What happens

The electoral register update will take part in two stages:

  1. online canvass – if you’ve provided an email, we’ll be asking you to check your details from the week beginning Monday 15 July
  2. household enquiry forms – if you haven’t provided an email, or don’t respond to our online canvass, you will be sent a form between late August and early September

We'll contact you when it's your turn to confirm your details.
