The electoral register is updated every year and it is a legal requirement to complete and return the form to ensure that everyone who is entitled to register to vote is able to do so. You will need to check the information is correct and any details that need to be changed. This can be done online at https://www.householdreponse.com/westsuffolk or by returning the form in the reply paid envelope by 4 August.
In June 2014, the Individual Electoral Registration (IER) was introduced. Instead of using a household form to register to vote, everyone will take individual responsibility for their own registration.
To apply, you will need to provide your National Insurance Number and date of birth. This will be used to verify who you are and reduce the risk of fraud and inaccurate entries on the register. IER allows you register online, register to vote online You can also register to vote by post by completing this voting registration form and sending it to the elections office at your relevant council.
