Fenland District Council to send out canvassers to make residents fill in Voter Registration forms
- Credit: Archant
Residents who have not yet returned their Voter Registration forms to Fenland District Council can expect a visit from an authorised canvasser who will make them complete them on the spot.
Canvassers, who carry official ID, will be out and about making visits from Thursday until January 26.
Anyone who fails to complete and return the form could lose the right to vote in future elections or have their credit rating affected.
If the householder is out at the time, a calling card will be left and a canvasser will return later to try and obtain the information.
Canvassers may call at homes where forms have been sent back already if essential information such as a signature or nationality is missing.

In some cases where forms may have already been returned but not yet received by the council, people will be asked to complete the form again with the canvasser to ensure a response.
