Please don’t ignore the letter dropping through your letterbox soon.
The 2022 annual canvass of electors starts in Epping Forest district with letters going out in the post on Monday 1 August.
Vote in future elections
It is essential you are registered to vote as it can affect your ability to get a mortgage, loan or even a mobile phone contract. It will also affect your ability to vote in future elections.
By law, we must carry out an annual canvass across the Epping Forest district to check that the information on the electoral register is correct and up to date.
The envelope dropping through letterboxes will be addressed to The Residents with instructions on the outside about what you need to do.
If you have access to the internet, landline or a mobile phone then please respond online, by phone or by text as soon as possible and by Friday 19 August at the latest.
Properties receiving a WHITE letter only need to respond if any of the information is incorrect or you need to delete, amend or add names. Just follow the instructions on the letter.
Properties receiving a YELLOW letter MUST respond, even if there are no changes to the details. Please check:
- The information is correct
- If the information is incorrect or you need to delete, amend or add names
Just follow the instructions on the letter.
Failure to respond means Council officers will have to chase this up – putting additional burden on Council Tax.
You will need your 2-part security code which you’ll find on the front of your letter if you are responding using any of the automated response options available.
