Canvassers working on behalf of East Cambridgeshire District Council have been knocking on the doors of residents who are yet to return forms which verify whether their voter registration records are correct.

Each year register of elector forms including household enquiry forms (HEFs) and individual registration forms (ITRs) are delivered to over 37,000 households in East Cambridgeshire to check the right people are registered to vote.

To help get residents to return the forms, canvassers will continue to be knocking on some people’s door during October to ask for completed forms.

The canvassers will have a copy of the form that is required to be completed and it can be filled out when the canvassers call.

Each canvasser will have identification with them, and anyone who has doubts about the caller should ring the council to check the canvasser’s details.

Residents should complete the forms no later than November 14 to be included in the new register being published on the December 1.

If residents do not make the deadline their details may not go on future registers, meaning people could lose their chance to vote and could affect people’s credit applications.
