Households in Southend-on-Sea will shortly be receiving a letter from the council asking residents to check that the information held on the electoral register is correct.
Residents are asked to read the household notification letter carefully, follow the instructions and only respond if they need to. They can also apply for a postal vote as part of the process.
Alison Griffin, chief executive of Southend-on-Sea Borough Council said: “The electoral services team are working hard to ensure that the electoral register is up to date, so please follow the instructions on the letter carefully.
If you need to respond because details are incorrect or need updating, please do so online if you can via www.householdresponse.co.uk/southend and enter the security codes provided on the letter.
Residents can follow these same steps if they wish to apply for a postal vote too or by calling the electoral services team on 01702 215010 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a resident is eligible to register to vote but their name does not appear on the household notification letter, they can register to vote by visiting www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or call the electoral services team on 01702 215010.
