East Lindsey homes set for canvas form

EVERY home in East Lindsey will shortly be sent a Household Registration form, or Canvas form.

There are many ways of returning details, including by internet, SMS and a 24/7 freephone service.

Electoral Registration Officer, Nigel Howells, said: “The government requires updated details to be given by law and every household must respond to this form. British, Commonwealth Irish and European Union citizens need to be on the Electoral Register so they can vote in forthcoming elections.

“Credit Reference Agencies also use the Electoral Register when checking residency and if your name is not included you may experience difficulties opening a bank account or obtaining credit.”

If you do not receive a form by September 2, call 01507 601111.
