Local residents are being advised to complete their annual canvass form online or by returning it to their local authority as soon as possible – to ensure they don’t lose their voice on matters that affect them.

With Local and Parish elections taking place in St Helens in May 2019, this is an important opportunity for residents to make sure they can vote, simply check the form when it arrives and respond as soon as you can. Checking the form is one of the easiest ways to find out if you are already registered.

People who have moved address recently are particularly encouraged to keep an eye out for the form and check the details. Research by the independent Electoral Commission indicates that recent home movers are far less likely to be registered than those that have lived at the same address for a long time.

If you are not currently registered, your name will not appear on the form. If you want to register, the easiest way is online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote, or we will send you information explaining how to do this in the post.

Any residents who have any questions can contact their local registration team at 01744 676464.
