Annual Canvass 2020

Every year we send a household canvass form to each residential property in the city with the details of residents currently registered to vote at the property. We are required to publish the revised electoral register following the annual canvass.

You will receive a letter from us. Make sure you read the contents carefully checking the information is correct and to find out if you're required to respond.

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

We are required to undertake a canvass as prescribed in law. The canvass this year is taking place during a challenging public health situation. We're working to ensure that we take into account of guidelines, including the continued importance of social distancing.

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