City Council Urge Hull Residents to Update Electoral Register



Hull City Council are beginning their annual electoral register canvassing this week.

Households who have a registered email address on the electoral register will receive an email from at the council asking them to check their household voter registration details.

The annual canvass takes place to allow the council to keep the electoral register up-to-date, and all households need to respond. Being correctly registered means residents can take part in elections.

Letters will be sent to households without a registered email from 12 July which can be responded to online, by text or phone. To use any of these methods, the two-part security code in the letter will be required.

Matt Jukes, Electoral Registration Officer, said: “It’s really important that all households respond, whether the information is correct or if it needs updating, so we can make sure we have the right details on the electoral register for every address in the city.

“Following the link in the email is the quickest way to respond and confirm or change household details.

“Over 90 percent of households respond each year, but I’m urging all households to respond through one of the quick and easy methods.”

If nothing has changed in the household:

Text: NOCHANGE followed by your two part security code to 80212
0800 197 9871 with and enter your two part security code
Go online: 
visit and enter your two part security code

If something in the household has changed:

Go online: visit and enter your two part security code.

If households don’t respond, they will then receive a canvass form in the post to request the information again. Residents can still respond online, by phone or by text but also by completing the paper form and returning it using the pre-paid envelope provided.

If no response is received after this time, the household will receive a visit from a member of council staff to seek the information. Each household is required by law to make sure the details on the form are correct and if they don’t, residents could face a fine.

Residents that have any questions can find out more here or by contacting the elections team on 01482 300 302.
