Annual Household Canvass

Image laptop displaying web page In order to know who is eligible to register to vote, we need to know who lives at each address in our area. We are required by law to carry out an annual household canvass to find this out each year.

It is important to provide the information requested: if you do not you could be fined £1,000.

This form is not a registration form but you do need to provide the information requested

Household Enquiry Forms are delivered to all households across Edinburgh and the Lothians. If this Form is not returned, a reminder will be issued and a member of our Canvass team will call at the property.

New names added to the Household Enquiry Form

Any new residents who are eligible to vote can go online to register at gov.uk/register-to-vote or by telephoning 0131 344 2500 and our Customer Support Team will assist you. It only takes a couple of minutes but you need your national insurance number and date of birth to complete an application. If you do not complete an application online we will send a separate Invitation to Register form to all people in your household who are eligible and need to register.
