ANNUAL CANVASS HOME VISITS - Our official election canvassing staff will be knocking on doors of addresses which have not returned their Household Enquiry Form between Friday 4th October and Monday 4th November. Our official canvassers will all be wearing official Basildon Council identification, see further information below.
Starting each July, Basildon Council's Electoral Services team will hand deliver an annual canvass Household Enquiry Form to all residential properties in the borough, asking residents to confirm who is currently living in the property and who is eligible to vote.
IMPORTANT, PLEASE NOTE: The Household Enquiry Form is not the same as a voter registration form but you DO need to complete it. The information you provide on the form will inform us of anyone in your household who is, or who has become, eligible to vote but has not yet registered. We will send out an invitation to register to anyone resident at your property who is, or who has become, eligible to vote but who has not yet registered.
Reminders - If we do not receive a reply to our initial Household Enquiry Form we will send reminder forms.
Personal Visits - If we do not receive a reply to the Household Enquiry Form reminders, an official canvasser will visit your property to help us complete the canvass. The canvasser will have official Basildon Council identification.
