Hambleton's Annual Electoral Canvass continues

Electoral digital canvas how residents might be contacted

The next stage of the annual canvass has begun and Hambleton residents are being advised that they may receive a canvass form over the next week by post.

The form will be from Hambleton District Council and addressed to the Resident/Occupier.

If you are required to respond, the quickest and easiest way to do this is online and details are on the forms.

By law, we must contact every residential address each year. This provides us with updated information about who is living at each address.

All eligible residents need to be included on the form.

Eligible residents are:

  • people who are aged 16 years or over (although they will not be able to vote until they are 18)
  • British, Irish or EU citizens, or
  • A Commonwealth citizen who has leave to remain in the UK or who does not require leave to remain in the UK

The annual canvass ensures that the council keeps the electoral register up to date, by identifying any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so.

Households that have already responded via email will not receive a canvass form.

If you have not received a form or letter from us by mid-September or you have lost it, please contact us for help – 01609 767263 or email elecreg@hambleton.gov.uk
