Arun District Council is in the process of delivering an important form to your home, it may already have arrived, if not, it will be with you soon.
The Household Enquiry Form (HEF) forms part of the Council’s annual canvass and is a vital way of ensuring that information on the electoral register is up to date. If you have moved home, changed your name or somebody in your household is turning 18 in the next 3 years this form is particularly important to you.
Although you may have voted in the recent UK Parliamentary Election held on 8 June 2017 you will still need to respond to this form in order to remain registered in 2018.
The HEF form has been designed to be as easy as possible to complete. You can respond online or by SMS, and full details of how to do this are in the letter on the front of the form. You can also complete the process over the phone, or of course by returning the paper form that you receive through your door.
Nigel Lynn, Chief Executive at Arun District Council and also Electoral
Registration Officer for the district, said: “This form is not a registration form but you do need to complete it. By checking, completing and returning these forms, we can ensure that registration continues and you will be included in future elections.”
“Encouraging our young voters is so important to the future of the Arun District, and I encourage you to ensure these details are completed on the form and returned as soon as possible. More information can be found at http://www.arun.gov.uk/registration or http://www.aboutmyvote.co.uk.”
