Time to check if you're on the electoral register

Tendring residents will soon be asked to check their electoral register details as the district's Electoral Registration Office sends out letters, emails or texts to ensure those who are eligible to vote are registered to do so.

Ian Davidson, Electoral Registration Officer for Tendring, said it was important people check all their details are correct, including their nationality, whether or not they are on the open register, and if they have a postal or proxy vote. “Your vote matters and it is important you don’t lose it – so please make sure you confirm details for your household, and update them, if needed,” he said. “If you do need to confirm or make changes, then doing so online is best – and I would ask households to respond by the end of August so we can avoid unnecessary reminders.”

Those who receive a white letter do not need to respond, provided all of the details are correct. Households which receive a yellow letter need to confirm their details, and submit any changes if required. While text and online is the most efficient means for residents to confirm or update their details, households can still complete the canvass form by phone or by post. With text or online options residents will receive an immediate confirmation of their response. To reply by post residents will need to provide an envelope and stamp.
