Check your voter information as part of annual survey
Households in County Durham are being asked to check if the voter information for their home is correct.
As part of our annual canvass, households will soon receive a letter asking them to confirm the information currently held on the electoral register.
How to respond
Confirming your details is quick and simple - and being registered to vote can help to improve your credit rating.
If all of the information on the form is correct you can:
- Visit Household Response and enter part 1 and part 2 of the security code printed on the form.
- Phone 0800 197 9871 and when prompted enter part 1 and part 2 of the security code printed on the form.
- Return it in the envelope provided. Postage is free.
The website can also be used to add or delete an elector's name, or to make changes to a current elector's name. It can also be used to request a postal vote or to opt out from being on the open register.
If any of the information is incorrect, it can also be amended on the form and returned to our electoral services team.
David Collingwood, electoral services manager, said: "It is important to respond to the request for information, even if there has been no change to the details, as otherwise people may be lost from the register and be unable to vote in future local and national elections."
