Annual Canvass 2023

We are contacting every property within Peterborough to confirm who is registered to vote at each address.

We require a response to this form even if there are no changes to report.

Every year we carry out an annual canvass of all residents in Peterborough. This is to make sure the electoral register is as accurate as possible. We are required to do this by law.

Each residential property receives a canvass communication form. It contains the details of all residents registered to vote at the property.

Following the annual canvass, we publish the revised electoral register.

What you need to do

You will receive a letter or, in some circumstances, an email from us.

Make sure you:

  • Read the contents carefully
  • Check the information is correct
  • Find out if you're required to respond

If you are required to respond and haven't, we will send you a reminder. If you are required to respond and haven't after the reminder, you may receive a phone call from us or a canvasser will visit the property to get a response.

All our canvassers will have Peterborough City Council ID cards displayed on their person when visiting. 

Wherever possible, where a response is required, you should consider responding:
