Issue: SNCPR11990

For Immediate Release

Voter registration a requirement for all

Forms asking residents to verify the information they have on the electoral register will begin dropping on doormats from 22 August, as South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) begins its annual canvass. More »

Voting in the UK is not mandatory, however being on the electoral register is. Residents risk a fine of £1,000 if they fail to register.

Anyone whose circumstances have changed in the last year will need to register.

These changes might include: a change of surname following marriage, divorce, a change of address, or they are turning 18 and need to register for the first time.

Sue Smith, Electoral Registration Officer for South Northamptonshire, said:"Elections and referendums are the most important way in which residents can participate in our democracy, as we saw this year with the EU referendum.

"But being on the electoral register is also essential for successful credit checks.So if you are signing up for a new mobile phone or taking out a mortgage, you need to be registered to vote.

"During this campaign we will be urging as many residents as possible to update their voter registration details."

The forms will go out to 38,500 addresses throughout the district. Residents are encouraged to verify their information as soon as possible in order to avoid receiving a reminder letter and possible follow-up visit from an authorised council canvasser. These are measures which SNC is required by law to take, but which incur additional cost to the taxpayer.

Because of the additional costs associated with follow-up forms and visits from canvassers, people are being encouraged to confirm their details at the earliest possible opportunity.

People who find that their information on the electoral register is correct should confirm this by calling 0800 197 9871, texting 80212; or visiting www.householdresponse.com/cherwellandsouthnorthantsand inputting the security codes printed on their form.

Those needing to amend the information held about them can do so via www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. » Less
