Usually, every August/September, each property in Wiltshire will receive a Register of Electors form. This form is used to update the information we have about who is registered to vote at the property.
You need to be included if you are:
- 18 and over
- British, Irish, Commonwealth or European Union Citizens
- 16/17 years old (so that you are eligible to vote as soon as you turn 18)
You must return your form by law and failure to do so, or to give false information, could result in a £1,000 fine.
To make sure we hold the correct details on our Electoral Register we undertake an Annual Canvass of all households.
You should not assume because you were registered last year you will be registered this year, new regulations that are in force mean that if you do not return your form within two consecutive years your names will be removed. If you aren't registered not only will you not be able to vote, you may also find that you are refused credit or loans.
