Annual Canvass 2021

Test Valley Borough Council have a duty to conduct an annual canvass to ensure that the electoral register is accurate and up to date. 

This year we will start making contact with properties in September and will continue throughout the autumn.  We will be making contact with some properties via email, where that information is held, as well as the more traditional method of sending paper communications through the post to those that we do not hold email addresses for.  From 11 October 2021, we will be commencing personal visits to those Route 2 properties that have not responded to the form that has been sent. 

The revised electoral register will be published on 1 December 2021. 

More information about the types of communications we are sending out, including being able to check if the email you have received is genuine, can be found in Parts Three and Four of this guidance.  Details of the process and how to respond are detailed below.
