Annual canvass

Each year between August and November we send Household Enquiry Forms (HEF) to every property in Swindon. It is important that you respond to this form (even if you have registered individually or if there are no changes to make) as it is used to record all the people living at the property to ensure anyone who is eligible to vote is actually registered, and to avoid reminders being sent.

No changes to the information printed on the HEF

If the names pre-printed are correct and no new names or amendments need to be made you can use the security codes printed on the form and respond online, or by telephone. Alternatively you can return the form by post in the pre-paid envelope. Please remember you must respond to the HEF even if there are no changes to be made.

Changes to the information

Use the security codes printed on the HEF to change and update the details online or you can amend the form and return by post in the pre-paid envelope. This form is used to tell us who should be registered at the property and each person is responsible for registering themselves, therefore anyone new who has been added to the form will still need to register individually. To do this, please go to the Register to Vote webpage and use the online link. You will need to provide your date of birth and national insurance number.

If you have lost your form

You can contact Electoral Services on 01793 464601 to confirm the details of who should be registered at the property. If anyone new is to be added you will need to provide the date of birth and national insurance number for each new individual.
