Annual Canvass

The Annual Canvass is in progress!


This year’s Annual Canvass has started. Over the course of July we will be
contacting all 89,000 households in Herefordshire to check their details for the
Electoral Register, as required by law.


We will be sending over 50,000 communications via email and text message where
possible, and posting out hardcopy forms as necessary.


Last year we received a number of queries as to the authenticity of the email
domain. The email will arrive to electors from


herefordshire.electoral.services@notifications.service.gov.uk and will contain a link
directing them to the online web response (https:www.elecreg.co.uk/hfds-e). This
email is genuine and the link is safe to click.


There will be two separate letters going out:

One that requires a response under any circumstances. We believe there
might be updates and changes in these households. For any households who
do not initially respond, we will be chasing further – including sending a
canvass form with a pre-paid envelope and, if no response, knocking on doors
as necessary.

One that requires a response ONLY if the details we already have are
incorrect. We believe there are no changes to report in these households.
This letter is only sent if we have been unable to get a response using emails
and texts.


As a response is not necessarily required, all we are asking the public to do is to
please read their correspondence carefully and follow the instructions.


We are of course promoting responses (where required) by internet but are well
aware this is not for everybody, so we have telephone and SMS options for them.
We are grateful for any assistance you can give to any of our residents that might
need help, and also with any wider publicity.

You can also view the annual canvass
FAQs at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/annualcanvass

Electoral Services can be contacted on 01432 260107 or
