Register to vote

Every household in the borough will soon be receiving the form asking residents to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register for those living at their address is correct as part of Burnley Council’s annual voter registration canvass.

The forms will be delivered by hand between July 6th-20th.

The aim of the form is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so.

You must respond to the form, even if there are no changes to the details. You can do this by using the automated telephone or text facility.

Any changes can be made online - instructions are on the form - or they can complete the form and post it back. You can’t use the automated facility for making changes.

Alison Stirling, elections officer at Burnley Council, said: “Anyone that wants to vote must be registered. To make sure you are able to have your say at the elections next year, simply check the form when it arrives and respond to it as promptly as possible.”

Further information can be found by calling 01282 477261 or 477263.
