Household Enquiry forms

Household Enquiry forms will be posted to residential addresses over the next few days from Friday 19 August. It is important to respond to this form by Wednesday 21 September.

The purpose of this form is to check who lives at an address and who should be included in the next register which will be published on Thursday 1 December 2016.

If there are no changes to the information on the form you can reply by phone or text.

If you need to make changes, such as change details and remove or add names please follow the instructions on the form and make these changes online or by post. Any forms we receive back by post with new names added will each receive another form to complete their registration.


New Voter Registration System

A new voter registration system came into effect on 10 June 2014 across the whole country. The new system is called Individual Electoral Registration (IER). More information on IER can be found on this page and on Government’s Electoral Registration web pages.

Under the old system the 'head of household' could register everyone who lived at the address on the Voter Registration form for that address. 

It included information about the Edited Register, which has been on the voter registration forms since 2002. The Edited register is now known as  the 'Open Register'.

Under the new system everyone is responsible for registering themselves. You will need your national insurance number, date of birth and address to register. You can now register online via the website. A letter will be sent to acknowledge that we have your registration and if there are no queries a confirmation letter will be sent out to say you're registered. Ballot Box 2012
