Canvassers encouraging voters to get on register

Have your say

A team of canvassers is going door-to-door across the district to encourage people to get on the electoral register.

East Hampshire District Council has recruited more than 60 workers to visit people who have not returned important information required from every home in the district.

During August and September every home was sent a form, which by law must be completed. These forms enable residents to remain on the electoral register.

The canvassers, who will be out in the district until November 16, will help residents complete the forms if need be.

The government’s new registration system requires each member of the household to register themselves to make the voting system more secure, and reduce the chance of electoral fraud.

If there have been no recent changes to your household you can give your information over the phone in East Hampshire on 01730 234350 or go to quoting the security codes on the form you have been sent.
