Annual canvass 2017

The annual canvass is now complete and we have published the revised Register of Electors on 1 December 2017. The register is available for public inspection at our offices during normal opening hours.

It is not too late to register to vote. If you think your household details are incorrect you can still inform us of changes by sending in a Household Enquiry Form (HEF) or by telephoning us. The online response service has now closed, but you can email us at elections@southlakeland.gov.uk.

The 2017 canvass pilot

We must ensure the electoral register is up to date, and to invite eligible people who are not registered to vote to do so.

We contacted all properties in the area to gather this information. This process is called the ‘annual canvass’.

This year we took part in an annual canvass pilot ran by the Cabinet Office. The pilot is looking at new, more efficient, ways to carry out the canvass. The results will now be assessed by the Cabinet Office, Electoral Commission and ourselves.
