Annual Canvass 2019
Register of Electors
During September/October households in Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde will be receiving a Household Enquiry Form asking residents to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register for those living at their address is correct as part of RVJB’s annual voter registration canvass.
The aim of the form is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so. It is important that residents respond to these forms whether there are any changes or not. If you don’t, we are required by law to send you two reminders. The first will be posted and if we still don’t receive a response, we are then required to send someone to your address to collect the necessary information
Voter engagement is vital to the success of this year’s electoral canvass and through the provision of an automated service, residents will be able to make a return via the internet, telephone (Freephone) 24 hours a day 7 days a week or if no changes, by Text. The automated service link, Freephone and Text details are as follow:
Freephone Number: 0800 975 8342
Text: 07860 017 988
Alternatively, forms can be returned by post in the pre-paid envelope provided.
The voting age for Scottish Elections has been permanently lowered to 16 so residents who will be aged 15 years or older by 30 November 2019 should be added to the form so that they appear on the register of electors when they become old enough to vote
Any residents who have any questions can contact the Electoral Registration helpline on 0300 300 0150 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
