Household enquiry canvass 2017

Find out what you need to do to confirm your details on the electoral register.

Every year the Government asks us to check the details of everyone registered to vote in households across Aldershot and Farnborough. We do this between August and November.

We send a household enquiry letter to all households with the information we currently hold on the register for that property. Confirming your information is quick and simple. It will mean that you will continue to be registered and you won't lose your right to vote.

You can also update the information if it has changed.

If all the details on the form are correct, you can confirm this using the household enquiry website for Rushmoor.

You will need to enter part 1 and part 2 of the security codes given on your letter, as shown.

You can also do this by calling our free phone number 0800 197 9871.

If your information is wrong or you need to make changes

You can make changes on the household enquiry website for Rushmoor.  This includes adding or removing people.

You will need to enter part 1 and part 2 of the security codes given on your letter.

Adding new people to your household

If anyone new is added, each person will then need to register individually.  They can do this at Register to vote - GOV.UK website.  They will need their national insurance number to complete the process.

If you do not respond to our letter, we will send a reminder.  If we still don't hear from you, a member of our elections team will visit your home to confirm the information.

Making a change to open register preferences for others in your household

If you are the person completing the online and telephone enquiry, you can make changes to your preferences and decide if you want your information to be included in the open register.

The security codes can only be used once, so anyone else who wants to make changes to their information can use:
