It's canvass time again

Published9th July 2018

The Annual Canvass of households, associated with the Electoral Register, has now started. Each year we have to, by law, find out who in a household is eligible to register to vote.

Household Enquiry Forms (HEFs) are being sent to all residential properties in the Borough of Ipswich (over 59,000) from around 09 July 2018. You are able to respond by internet, telephone or by SMS text. If these options are not available or accessible to you, you can return the form in the envelope provided.

As required by the Government, if you do not respond, we will be required to send you a reminder HEF and if you still do not respond then the Council will, by law, need to visit your property to try to obtain a response.

This costs the Council, and you, time and money. Save time and money, respond on-line, by phone or by text!
