Over 27,000 yet to respond to AVDC voter registration forms

Vote - Survey

1:39pm 13th September 2017

Over 27,000 households are yet to respond to AVDC's voter registration forms.

People across Aylesbury Vale are legally obligated to confirm or update the details of anyone at their address who is eligible to vote in the UK.

The forms are pre-printed with the names of the occupants currently registered to vote at each address. A response is required, either to update their details if there are any changes, or to confirm that the information is still the same. Even people who voted in the General Election will need to respond.

Peter Brown, AVDC Electoral Services Manager, said:

"Although the canvass response rate to date has been encouraging, over 30 per cent of homes in the Vale have yet to respond. We have to undertake a number of prescribed steps to follow up on non-responding properties. Those households who do not respond to the reminder have to be personally visited, which is an expensive exercise. We are urging residents to help us save money wherever possible by responding to their reminder form promptly."

People can respond online using a unique 14 digit reference number which is printed on the form.

The online process also allows people to add the names of any new occupants as well as remove names of those who no longer live at the address, or request a postal application.
