Register to Vote - Annual Canvass

Your Vote Matters

Residents living in New Forest District's area will be receiving a form asking them to check and update information that appears on the electoral register for their address.

During Autumn 2019, Electoral Services will carry out a canvass of all properties within the District. Every property will receive a Household Enquiry Form asking residents to check and update the information we currently hold.   You can vote at elections only if your name is on the Register of Electors.  The form is quick and easy to complete, there are a number of ways you can respond;  online, by text, phone or by returning your completed form in the pre-paid envelope provided.

An updated register will be published on 1 December 2019, after this date we make changes to the register during the year on a monthly basis.

British, Irish and Commonwealth citizens and citizens of British Overseas Territories are eligible to register to vote at all elections in this country, whereas citizens of other member states of the European Union may only register to vote at local elections.
