Annual canvass

Electoral services are required every year by law to confirm whether the details we hold on the electoral register for every household are accurate. This known as the annual canvass.

Blackpool Council will conduct registration activities between July and November to ensure that the electoral register is up to date for publication on 1 December each year.

Your property will receive correspondence in July or August with instructions of what action to take (if any) - please ensure you read the form and check the household details contained within.

Responding online

When we conduct registration activities to ensure that the electoral register is up to date, you will receive a form.

Not all households will receive the same form type, so please ensure that you read and follow the instructions carefully on the form.

If the correspondence asks you to respond, or you notice something that needs correcting, the easiest way is online. It takes just a few minutes.

Please ensure that you have your unique security code to hand (found on the form) and visit Household Response

The electoral services team are on hand to answer any queries that you may have about the annual canvass by email or by telephone 01253 477490 or 01253 477161.
