Act now – make sure you’re registered to vote in local elections

Croydon residents are being asked to confirm their details for the electoral register to make sure they can vote in future elections.

Croydon Council is contacting all households, either by email or a form in the post, asking them to confirm their details for the electoral register.

This is so that the council can make sure it holds the correct information for voters, and also identify any residents who are not registered to vote and encourage them to do so.

All councils are required to carry out these checks, every year by law, in a process called the annual canvass.

Please carefully check the instructions on your form to see if a response is required. The quickest and easiest way to confirm your details and add or remove residents is at www.householdresponse.com/croydon, using the unique code in your email or letter. Alternatively return the paper form as soon as possible.

Further information can be found on the council’s annual canvass webpages If you have any queries contact our local registration team at electoral.services@croydon.gov.uk or by calling 0300 373 0595.
