South Oxfordshire District Council is sending a ‘Canvass Communication Form’ to every home requiring the residents to check the details of everyone over the age of 16 that lives in their property. Local authorities need to do this by law each year in order to ensure the electoral register is up to date.
The letter people receive in July/August will depend on whether or not records indicate that there has been a change in the registered voters living at their property. For instance, if a registered voter has recently moved into a property, then that address will receive a yellow letter, while a home whose occupants have remained the same since the last election will receive a green letter.
If your household receives a yellow letter:
Once you have checked the details, please visit householdresponse.com/southandvale to either confirm that everything is correct, or to update the information for your property. You will need the two-part code on the letter to do this.
If your household receives a green letter:
If the details are correct – you don’t need to do anything.
If the information is not correct – please visit householdresponse.com/southandvale to update the details for your property. You will need the two-part code on the letter to do this.
In either case, the letter will explain exactly what you need to do. It is very important that you read it carefully.
If you are required to either confirm or update your details online, please do so as quickly as possible. This helps to ensure that the council doesn’t have to send you a reminder or try to contact you again this Autumn to confirm the information.
