Notice of Review Letters/Individual electoral registration

Notice of Review of Entitlement Letter

Final reminder letters have been sent to residents across Cherwell warning them they will be removed from the electoral register unless they confirm their details within 14 days.

Under the national Individual Electoral Registration guidelines, the shared elections team at Cherwell District and South Northamptonshire Councils is required to undertake an annual review of elector details.

Those who failed to confirm or update their details during the annual canvass earlier this year have now been sent final reminder letters asking them to confirm their details within 14 days or they will be removed from the electoral register. 

How to respond if you are still resident at your property?

You will need to reply either by letter or email and state that you are still residing at the property.

Please email elections@cherwellandsouthnorthants.gov.uk

If you are responding to a review of registration letter via email, we will process your request and please be assured that this auto reply serves as acknowledgement that you responded within the required time period and you will receive an email confirmation by the end of January 2017

The Government has introduced Individual Electoral Registration (IER) across the country. Previously, registration was done by the householder, who was responsible for completing the registration on behalf of/for all residents eligible to vote in the household. Under IER everyone in the household who is eligible to vote is now responsible for registering themselves.

This new process will be quicker, more convenient, make the electoral register more secure and enable online registration.

Why register?

If you are not on the register, you can't vote and won't have a say in how the country is run. Don't lose your right to vote.

Being on the register is proof of your identity and is often used by credit reference agencies and mortgage companies. These companies check the register when people apply for credit, in order to counteract fraud.

Not only will you not be able to have a say at future elections, but if you don't respond to requests for information from us, you could be at risk of being fined.

Who is affected?

Under IER everyone in the household who is eligible to vote is responsible for registering themselves.

If you are registering to vote for the first time, you will need to provide your name, national insurance number and date of birth. Under IER you will be able to do this online. Once your details have been checked, you will be added to the register.
