Household Enquiry Forms 2018

Annual Canvass 2018

Each year we check who should be registered to vote at every household. From early July we will be delivering a Household Enquiry Form to every household in the Borough asking residents to check the information is correct. The letter will be addressed to "the occupier" and will contain details of all those in the household who are currently registered to vote. The household enquiry form is not a registration form but you do need to complete it.

Legal requirement

All households are legally required to respond to this form. If they don't, we are required by law to send reminders. If we still don't receive a response we are then required to visit households to collect the necessary information.

If you do not give the information asked for in this form you could face a fine of up to £1000.

How to respond

If there are CHANGES to make to the details on the form, the quickest and easiest way is to go online www.householdresponse.com/highpeak, you will need to enter part 1 and part 2 of your security code which can be found on the front of your form. You can add or remove people from the form OR complete the paper form and then post it back to us in the envelope provided.

If any new people are added to the form they must also register to vote themselves, the quickest and easiest way is to go online www.gov.uk/registertovote or they will be sent a paper form to complete, an Invitation to Register, by post. Their National Insurance Number and Date of Birth will be required.

If there are NO CHANGES to make to the details on the form there are four ways you can let us know:
