Annual canvass

The 2019 annual canvass has finished. You can view the revised register at the Civic Centre reception. 

Every year we carry out an annual canvass of all households in Harlow to check that the information on the electoral register is up to date.

You will not be able to vote if your name is not on the register. You may also find it difficult getting credit for things like a mortgage or bank loan.

We will send enquiry forms to every property in Harlow.

The form will be pre-printed with the details currently held on the electoral register for that address. It will be blank if there is nobody registered at the property. 

You need to confirm that the information is correct, or make changes to incorrect information.

If your information is correct:

You can confirm that the information is correct on the Household Response website.

You will need your two unique security codes provided on the form to confirm your details.

You can also use the paper form, text (80212) or phone (0800 197 9871) during the canvass.

If you need to make changes:

If you registered after 18 July your name may not be pre-printed on the form. You will need to add your name to the enquiry form.

You can make changes to your information on the Household Response website.

You will need the updated details and your two unique security codes provided on the form to make changes.

If you add someone to the form and they are eligible to vote they also need to register to vote

You can also use a paper form and post it back to us.

If you do not respond:

If you do not complete the form:

  • a canvasser will call at your property between 13 September and 21 October 2019 to request the information
  • a final reminder will be sent in the post on 1 November if we have still not received a response
  • you could be fined up to £1,000 if we have still not received a response

You will be able to view the register from 1 December 2019 at the Civic Centre.
