What happens next

If you confirm that there are no changes, we won’t write to you again as part of the 2017 canvass.

The household enquiry form is not an application to go on the register - if you tell us there are new people eligible to be registered, we’ll send each a separate application called an invitation to register form which will be addressed to the individual. Alternatively you can register at www.gov.uk/registertovote.

You will need your National Insurance number and date of birth.

Your National Insurance number can be found on your National Insurance card or letter, or on official paper work such as payslips or letters about tax or benefits. If you cannot find your National Insurance number, visit www.gov.uk/lost-national-insurance-number.

Remember: we must have the household enquiry information completed either online or by returning the form.

If you haven’t been given a National Insurance number, you will need to provide a reason when applying. We will then contact you to provide further evidence as to your identity.

If you tell us someone has moved away, we'll send them a further letter so that we can confirm this information. This is because we need to have two pieces of evidence to remove an elector from the register.
