Return your household enquiry form so you can vote
Published on Monday, 29th July 2019
Households in Hambleton are being reminded that they need to return their annual household enquiry form by 7 August to save a reminder having to be sent or a personal visit to their home.
The electoral register is updated every year and 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 - the form needs to be completed and returned as soon as possible, even if there are no changes to make.
To save time and money this can be done online at www.householdreponse.com/hambleton or if there are no changes to be made by ringing 0800 197 9871 - you will need the security codes that are printed on the form.
New home owners or anyone who has recently moved are being encouraged to look out for the form as statistics show that recent home movers are far less likely to be registered than those that have lived at the same address for a long time.
With Police and Crime Commissioner elections taking place in May 2020, this is an important opportunity for residents to make sure they can vote.
Any new electors added to the household enquiry form will be sent an additional form to register them to vote, although you can also register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
Further information about the electoral register can be found on hambleton.gov.uk/electoralregister and residents who have questions can contact the Council by calling 01609 779977 or emailing email@example.com
