Don’t lose your vote – residents across the districts urged to check their voter registration details
Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils have started the Annual Canvass of Electors and are asking residents to check the electoral registration details for everyone eligible to vote at their address.
This is to ensure no one lose their chance to vote in future election on the decisions that affect them.
The councils’ electoral services team will be sending emails and letters to residents with instructions on how to check and update their information. Find information about the Annual Canvass can be found on the councils' website.
Arthur Charvonia, electoral registration officer at Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils, said:
“The annual canvass is our way of making sure that the information on the electoral register for every address is accurate. To make sure you don’t lose your say at the next election, look out for updates and instructions from the councils this month."
