Annual canvass

Each year, we make contact with every property in the borough to check that electoral register details are correct. This process is a rule of law and known as the annual canvass. The annual canvass allows you to make any changes you need to make to your electoral information.

To begin with, secure background checks take place on each property. This involves matching information we hold on the electoral register with other national and local sources. The results of this then determine which communication each property receives.
