Will you be able to vote next May?

The next phase of the annual canvass gets underway this week, with around 58,000 letters being sent to Wiltshire households, with people being encouraged to respond electronically.

Each year Wiltshire Council asks all residents to complete the annual canvass to check who is eligible to register to vote, and this year it’s being done a little differently.

It’s part of the Electoral Registration Officer’s (ERO) legal requirement to conduct an annual canvass to ensure the electoral register is accurate and complete. Some residents have already been contacted via email and were asked to confirm the details for their household, and of the responses received, 95% were done electronically.

Wiltshire Council encourages all residents respond to the annual canvass electronically if they can. It’s more convenient for the resident and saves the council money and time.

Wiltshire Council or the Electoral Commission will never ask people for their bank details.
