The Annual Electoral Canvass has begun

PR2442/HJR/MF - 11/07/2022

Mid Sussex District Council has begun contacting residents by e-mail or text to ask them to confirm their details on the 2022-23 electoral register.

Every year, the Council must complete an electoral canvass to update the electoral register. This ensures that any resident who is eligible to vote can do so.

All households in Mid Sussex will be contacted as part of this work, with responses used to update the register, accurately and completely.

To determine who, how and when households will be contacted; data held on the Electoral Register for each household is matched against the information on the Department of Work and Pensions database.

Starting on Monday 11 July, households may receive either an e-mail or text providing information on how to respond to the canvass. Follow the steps provided so you can have your say at future elections.

If you do not receive an e-mail or text, you will be contacted by post later.

By using digital channels to respond, all information is processed instantly and effectively.  Responding early, prevents costly reminders being sent, which is also better for the environment.
