Residents in Waverley are being urged not to miss important voter registration information in the post.

Forms are dropping through the letter boxes of all households in the borough asking them to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register about their address is correct.

Waverley Borough Council is asking residents to look out for the form in the post and respond by 10 August 2018 to avoid a reminder letter being sent. The aim of the form is to make sure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so.

Residents can respond quickly and easily by using one of the internet, phone or text options outlined on the form or by completing and returning the form using the envelope provided.

It is a legal requirement that a member of each household responds to the form and you have to be registered to be able to take part in the borough and town and parish elections that will be held in the borough on 2 May 2019. Being registered to vote can also help when making credit applications.
