Don’t lose your right to vote Annual voter canvass

Residents in the Malvern Hills district are being urged to fill out and return their annual voter registration form. Completing and returning the form on time makes sure voters details are up to date on the electoral register, enabling them to vote at future elections without a hitch.

Annual voter registration forms will soon be dropping through letterboxes across the Malvern Hills district and residents are being reminded by Malvern Hills District Council to complete and return the form as soon as possible.

Electoral Registration Officer, Chris Bocock said: “Responding is very simple. If your details haven’t changed you can confirm the information online or by phone. Alternatively you can make changes to the information on the form, sign it, and return it in the pre-paid envelope. It is important that you respond by 4th November to save your council money in having to issue reminders. Please remember that you can opt to exclude your details from the edited register that has to be made available for general sale. Both the online and phone confirmation systems include this option”.
