Annual canvass

Each year in September, we send out a canvass letter to all the residential properties in Bracknell Forest. This year we will also be sending email reminders.

This is so that we can collect information about who needs to be added or removed from the Register of Electors.

You must respond to this letter, even if the details in it are correct. If no one is currently registered, the form will be blank.

The quickest and easiest way to respond is online and it will take less than 5 minutes to complete. Over 60% of residents responded online last year. Replying online allows the council to save money and put it towards the running of other local services.

Details are correct

If all the details are correct, you must now confirm this to us by using the following options (you will need the security codes at the bottom of your letter):

Details need to be changed

If any details need to be changed or someone needs to be added or removed (including anyone now over 16 years old) you need to tell us using the household update service online form. Please note you will need the security codes at the bottom of your letter.

Added names

If you add someone in your reply to the annual canvass, they must complete the registration process on GOV.UK.

They will need to provide the following details:

  • name
  • nationality
  • date of birth
  • national insurance number
  • current (and, if appropriate, previous address)

Further details

If you are unable to use the options above please complete the form, sign the declaration and return it to us at the address at the top of the letter. Do not return the form if you have already confirmed online, by phone or by text.
