Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council will be contacting residents in August and September to make sure their details are correct for the electoral register. It is a legal requirement that people who are eligible to vote are on the electoral register.
Maria said, ‘it is important that Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council have the correct details for everyone on the register, but it is useful for everyone too – the electoral register is used for credit checks if you want to apply for a loan, or even some identity checks if you want to buy age-restricted products online. Make sure your details are right on the register.’
People will receive an email from the Council with a subject line, ‘Do Not Delete - You need to respond. Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council are updating the electoral register.’ Updating details is easy – it can be done online, via text, or on the phone.
The full revised register of electors will be published in December 2022. For more information call 01256 845467 or visit www.basingstoke.gov.uk/canvass
