We are required to conduct an annual canvass of households in Derby each year to ensure that the Register of Electors is kept up to date.
The canvass is changing this year to make it easier for you to respond:
If you have previously given us your email address or a mobile phone number, we may use these to ask you to confirm or update your records through our household response service. You should follow the instructions in the email or message to avoid paper forms being sent to your household.
You can access the online Household Response Service and enter the security code provided in the email or message we sent you.
If you have moved into a new address recently please check that you are responding for your current address.
If the household response service shows your previous address, please do not proceed.
We will send a paper form to your current address but you, and other members of your household, can ensure you are registered as soon as possible by visiting GOV.UK - Register to vote.
You should still respond to confirm that there are no changes to make to the electoral register.
This will help prevent further emails, messages or letters being sent to you.
We have contacted you by email or text message because you have previously provided us with your contact details on an electoral registration form.
If you no longer want to be contacted by email or text message you should contact the Electoral Registration Officer to unsubscribe by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone on 01332 640837.
We will still need to contact you using other methods even if you unsubscribe from email or phone communication.
If we send you a letter by post, you should read it carefully. The letter will tell you whether you need to respond or not.
The easiest way to respond is online, by visiting the Household Response Service and entering the security code printed on your letter.
If all of your information is correct on the letter you can either:
Only return your canvass communication form by post if you are required to respond and are unable to use any of the online, phone or text options.
Amended canvass communticaion forms can be sent to:
The Electoral Registration Officer
Derby City Council
Derby DE1 2FS
You do not need to return the paper form if you have already responded using the other options
