The process that will allow Hull residents to take part in the 2024 Local Elections is underway again.
The annual electoral register canvass allows Hull City Council to keep the electoral register up to date.
All households need to respond, to ensure residents are correctly registered.
Households who have a registered e-mail address on the electoral register will receive an e-mail from email@example.com at the Council asking them to check their household voter registration details.
Letters will be sent to households without a registered e-mail, and residents can respond by text, phone or online.
All of these methods will require the two-part security code included in the letter.
If nothing has changed in the household:
Text: NOCHANGE followed by your two-part security code to 80212
Phone: 0800 197 9871 and enter your two-part security code
Go online: visit www.householdresponse.com/Hull and enter your two-part security code
If something in the household has changed:
Go online: visit www.householdresponse.com/Hull and enter your two-part security code.
If households don’t respond, they will 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 there is still no response after this, the household will receive a visit from a member of Hull City Council staff to seek the information.
Each household is required by law to make sure the details on the form are correct.
If they don’t, residents could face a fine.
Matt Jukes, Electoral Registration Officer, said: “It’s quick and easy to reply, and over 90% of households respond appropriately each year.
“We want to have the right details on the electoral register for every address in the city, so it’s vital that all households read their letter carefully, and check their details are correct.”
