Mid Sussex District Council is offering residents who respond to the annual electoral canvass by telephone, text message or online the chance to win one of three £50 Marks and Spencer vouchers.
Each year, everyone in the UK must confirm their electoral registration details are up-to-date by responding to the annual electoral canvass. Mid Sussex District Council will shortly be sending household enquiry forms to every household in the District and is encouraging local people to respond as soon as possible to avoid the need for any chase up correspondence.
The quickest and most convenient ways of responding to the annual electoral canvass are via telephone, text message or online. By using these digital channels, all information is processed instantly and effectively, there’s no chance of the form being lost in the post and it’s the most environmentally friendly way to respond. Contacting the Council in this way also provides taxpayers with huge savings when compared with the cost of posting back the form.
Mid Sussex District Council is encouraging everyone to respond to the canvass by using telephone, text message or the online form and those who do will be automatically entered into a free prize draw to win one of three £50 Marks and Spencer vouchers.
Tom Clark, Electoral Registration Officer for Mid Sussex said:
“We want to help the residents of Mid Sussex to have their say, maintain their credit rating and ensure they do not miss out on the opportunity to vote.
“By law, everybody must respond to the annual electoral canvass but how you respond is just as important. If you respond by telephone, text message or online then you’ll be helping to save taxpayers thousands of pounds. We want as many people as possible to contact us via these digital channels, so if you do, we’ll enter you into a free prize draw for the chance to win a £50 Marks and Spencer voucher.”
