Croydon residents are being urged to not to lose their voice in local elections by ensuring their details are up-to-date on the electoral register.
Over the past two weeks, Croydon Council has contacted all households, either by email or a form in the post, asking them to confirm their details for the annual voter registration canvass.
This ensures that the electoral register is kept up-to-date, and also helps the council to identify any residents who are not registered to vote and encourage them to do so. All councils are required to carry out an annual canvass by law.
This is an opportunity for Croydon residents to make sure they are registered to vote in the council’s governance referendum which will be held on 7 October 2021 and local elections in May 2022.
Any residents who have not yet responded to their email or form are asked to do so as soon as possible. The quickest and easiest way to do this is online at www.householdresponse.com/croydon, using the unique code the council has sent you in your email or letter. Alternatively return the paper form as soon as possible.
Any residents who have any questions can contact their local registration team at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 020 8726 6300.
“You need to be on the electoral register to vote, so please do look out for your email or paper form from us and confirm that the details we have for you are correct. The council is required to carry out an annual canvass by law and by responding on time, you can help to save your council money. If you need help or advice, there is information on our electoral services webpages or contact our elections team who will be happy to help.”
