FENLANDER: Electoral registration forms to be delivered to Fenland homes earlier than usual

THE annual electoral registration forms are being delivered to households throughout Fenland earlier than usual this year to ensure that eligible electors are registered in time for the Police and Crime Commissioner election for Cambridgeshire scheduled to take place on November 15.

Canvassers will be delivering the forms to all homes in the district over the next week or two. People are being reminded that they could lose their right to vote in future elections if they fail to complete and return the forms.

They are also being warned that failure to respond could affect their future credit ratings.

The annual canvass, which is carried out by Fenland District Council, gives voters the chance to confirm or update their details on the register.

It also gives people an opportunity to do something to help stem the flow of junk mail. There are two versions of the Register - the full one and an edited version.

You may also want to watch:

The latter is used by direct marketing companies to target individuals with promotional material. The registration forms contain an “opt out” that enables people to take their names and addresses off that version.

Anyone requiring more information should contact FDC’s electoral services team by calling 01354 654321 or e-mailing elections@fenland.gov.uk
