Blaby News Green Envelope

The Annual Canvass to ensure all eligible voters details in Blaby District are up to date has begun.

More than 20,000 residents will receive an email on Thursday 07 July 2022 asking them to check their details are correct. These residents have previously given permission for the Council to contact them for the Annual Canvass process.

Residents receiving an email containing this information can be assured it is genuine.

Letters will be distributed to other households in the district who have not signed up to receive an email on Wednesday 27 July. The letters will offer clear instructions on whether a response is required from the household.

Residents can respond online at,via text or by posting back the completed form using the information provided in the letter.

Each household is required by law to make sure that the details on the form are correct. To enable this, more Annual Canvass work will take place throughout 2022, including Canvass Forms and door knocking. These later stages will only apply to those who have not responded.

Residents are urged to respond as soon as possible to the form. Having accurate information on the electoral roll can help personal credit ratings.

Most canvass forms will list the details of who is currently on the electoral register at the address. Properties where no one is registered to vote will receive a blank form.

All eligible residents need to be included on the form. Eligible residents include people who are aged 16 years or over, British, Irish or EU citizens and Commonwealth citizens who has leave to remain in the UK, or do not require leave to remain in the UK.

More information can be found on the Annual Canvass page.
