   WAVERLEY ARE UPDATING ELECTORAL RECORDS    1 August, 2019

Residents in Waverley are being urged to complete their Household Enquiry form

Waverley Borough Council is asking residents to look out for the form in the post and respond by 16 August 2019 to avoid a reminder letter being sent. The aim of the form is to make sure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so.

Residents can respond quickly and easily by using one of the online, phone or text options outlined on the form or by completing and returning the form using the envelope provided.

It is a legal requirement that a member of each household responds to the form and you have to be registered to be able to take part in elections. Being registered to vote can also help when making credit applications.

Waverley Borough Council Chief Executive and Returning Officer, Tom Horwood, said: “This year’s annual canvass is starting and we are making it easier to respond. You can register online, by phone or by text. As well as ensuring the electoral register is accurate and enabling you to vote, registering can improve your credit rating. If we do not receive a response, we have to send out a reminder and then make a personal visit to your home.”
