Don't lose your voice - 2021 Annual Household Canvass gets underway

Fenland residents are being reminded not to lose their voice on decisions that affect them by making sure their electoral registration details are up-to-date.

Elections

Canvassers are delivering Annual Household Canvass Forms to addresses across the district during the next few weeks, as the annual canvass gets underway.

The canvass, which has to be carried out by law, ensures that Fenland District Council can keep the electoral register up-to-date - by inviting unregistered residents to register to vote, and removing the names of electors who no longer live at the address.

The council will contact households in a number of different ways including by post, email, text message or by phone, inviting residents to check and, if necessary, update their electoral information.

Not every household will need to respond, but those that are required to do so are encouraged to as soon as possible to ensure that the process runs smoothly and to remove the need for reminders and any further contact.

Leader of the Council Chris Boden, Fenland District Council's Portfolio Holder for Finance with responsibility for Corporate Governance, said: "It's important that residents keep an eye out for their canvass form from the Council, so we can make sure we have the right details on the electoral register for every address in Fenland.

"People who have moved address recently are particularly encouraged to keep an eye out for the form and check the details."
