Residents in Hambleton are being reminded that they need to keep their Electoral Register records up to date and to look out for their annual household enquiry form which should be arriving soon.

The electoral register is updated every year and published on 1 December. It is a legal requirement to complete and return the form to ensure that everyone who is entitled to register to vote is able to do so.

You could help save us money by responding electronically.

If there are no changes to make you can respond either by free phone, text or online.

However, changes can only be made electronically using online facilities.

Details on how you can respond are contained in your Household Enquiry Form.

Alternatively if you don’t have access to the above you can return the form in the pre-paid envelope provided.

 “It is important that residents respond as soon as possible, so we have the right details on the electoral register for every address in Hambleton. To save a reminder having to be sent or a personal visit to your home please respond by 7 August.” said  Dr Justin Ives, Electoral Registration Officer at Hambleton District Council.

“An election can be called at anytime in the year so it is important for residents to make sure they can vote.”

Any new residents added to the enquiry form are required to register individually online at  www.gov.uk/registertovote or a form will be sent by post.

Residents who have questions regarding the canvass can contact the council by calling 01609 779977 or emailing elecreg@hambleton.gov.uk
