Each year Bedford Borough Council has a statutory duty to confirm the details currently held on the Electoral Register. This is done by sending out a Household Enquiry Form.
If the Electoral Registration Officer does not receive a response to the Household Enquiry Form, a Canvass Registration Assistant is required to visit the address in order to obtain the confirmation.
Canvass Registration Assistants will be out in the Borough over the coming weeks speaking to those households who are yet to respond. All our Registration Assistants have an ID badge and will be asking to confirm details they already have.
Some instances require the Canvass Registration Assistant to ask you for further information such as a National Insurance Number and date of birth. This is normally required for residents who are not yet registered to vote with Bedford Borough Council.
