Register of Electors Annual Canvass

Register of Electors Annual Canvass

Every year North Warwickshire Borough Council electoral services are legally required to check the details that we hold for your household for the purpose of publishing an accurate Register of Electors.

Every household will be contacted either by letter, email or will receive a telephone call, asking residents to check the information we currently hold is correct, even if you have recently registered to vote, your house is empty or you have just moved. 

We will be sending out emails on 30 June 2023 and then forms to other households around 14 July 2023.

Why have I received an email or form?

We must contact every property in the borough each year to see who should be registered to vote at each address.

If we hold an email address for you, we'll use this to contact you. If not, you will have received a form. The communication you receive will tell you whether or not you need to respond.

Where changes are required, you must reply, and the quickest and easiest way to update your details is onlineby following the instructions in the communication you receive. You will need the security codes that are provided on the communication.

If you do not complete the information promptly, we may send out reminders. If you still do not respond to our reminder, we may then telephone you or carry out a personal visit.

What you need to do

Some forms will state that you only need to respond if the information is incorrect. If you need to make changes, then you should:

  • Go to www.householdresponse.com/northwarks
  • Enter your unique security codes from your communication
  • Check that the information for your property is correct
  • Confirm your details, or make any changes, and press 'Confirm'

If the form you've received says you need to respond - then follow the same steps above to respond online.

If there are names printed on the form:

Those people are currently registered to vote at the property. Are their details correct?

Does anyone else live there? If so, please tell us who else is eligible to register to vote at the property.

If there are no names printed on the form:

  • Does anyone live at the property? If so, please tell us who is eligible to register to vote at the property.  Including 16 and 17 year-olds. 
  • If no-one at the property is eligible to vote or it is currently empty, you still need to respond. You will be able to let us know why no electors are registered.  If the form is not responded to, we will send reminders, this is frustrating for the residents and us and wastes resources.
  • Go to www.householdresponse.com/northwarks
  • Enter your unique security codes from your communication
  • Check that the information for your property is correct
  • Confirm your details, or make any changes, and press 'Confirm'

You can also respond by:

Post: Amend the form or use a separate piece of paper and return in your own envelope if one is not provided to Register of Electors, North Warwickshire Borough Council, South Street, Atherstone, Warks, CV9 1DE

Phone: Only if the details shown are correct then you can call 0800 197 9871 and when prompted enter your security codes.
