FENLANDER: Expect a visit from a canvasser if you’ve not completed your Voter Registration form
RESIDENTS who have not yet returned their Voter Registration forms to Fenland District Council can expect a visit from an authorised canvasser over the next few weeks. They will be asked to complete the form on the spot.
Canvassers started their rounds of the district this week and will continue until September 23. They will all carry official ID.
If the householder is out at the time of the visit, a calling card will be left and a canvasser will return later to try and obtain the information.
Canvassers may call at properties 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.

Anyone who fails to complete and return the form could lose the right to vote in future elections. Failure to respond could also affect individuals’ future credit ratings.
