Annual Canvass 2020

The way we carry out the annual canvass to update the electoral register is changing.  These changes will include making contact with some properties via email, as well as the more traditional method of sending paper communications through the post to those that we do not hold email addresses for.

More details about the types of communications we are sending out, including being able to check if the email you have received is genuine, can be found in Parts Three and Four of this guidance.

Test Valley Borough Council have a duty to conduct an annual canvass to ensure that the electoral register is accurate and up to date. This starts in July and will run until November. The revised electoral register will be published on 1 December 2020.  Details of the new process and how to respond are detailed below.
