BROMSGROVE residents are being urged to pay close attention to an annual canvass form which will arrive through their letterboxes this week.

The council is sending letters out as part of the national Annual Canvass, which aims to make sure UK residents are registered.

Household Enquiry Forms will be sent to each household urging residents to update and verify their details as soon as possible to protect the public purse.

Electoral services manager Darren Whitney said: “If we have to chase people with reminders it costs the council time and money which could be spent in other areas which are important to our residents.

“A referendum or national election can be called at short notice so it means you don’t have to worry about being on the register. Being registered can also impact your credit rating significantly.

“It only takes a few moments – please take action!”
