Make sure you’re registered to vote
Over 65% of residents in the Tandridge district have already returned their Household Enquiry Forms (HEF) and confirmed their details on the electoral register.
At the moment, residents in the 12,828 properties who have not yet responded may not be able to vote in future elections. Each household should have received the form by e-mail or post and it is important they are checked, completed and returned. Reminders are now being sent to households which have not responded.
Even if residents were registered last year, they may not be automatically included in this year's register. In addition, paying council tax does not automatically mean residents are listed in the Register of Electors.
All details can be updated online or by amending the printed version and returning it in the post. If residents add an e-mail address they will receive future correspondence by e-mail, making the process more efficient. Anyone added to the form should also register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
It’s really important residents who are entitled to vote respond now. Once the form has been checked it’s easy to go online and make amendments or confirm everything is correct. Sending out the forms every year is a legal requirement and residents can be fined up to £1000 for not responding to the form.
Anyone with any questions about the form, voting or the electoral register should visit www.tandridge.gov.uk/elections.
