Residents across Enfield are being urged to make sure they are on the electoral register so they can have their say in future elections.

Residents across Enfield are being urged to make sure they are on the electoral register so they can have their say in future elections.
 
Every household in the borough will soon be sent a Household Enquiry Form asking residents to confirm their details for the electoral register – failure to respond could result in a fine of up to £1,000.00.
 
Enfield Council needs to ensure the Electoral Register is up to date. Even if none of your details have changed, you still need to respond to the Household Enquiry Form.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Finance and Efficiency, Cllr Dino Lemonides, said: “If you want to have a say on how your neighbourhood, town or country is run then make sure you are registered to vote. This is one of the best ways to ensure your voice is heard and helps support strong communities.


“In addition, Enfield will be holding local council elections in May 2018. If you want to be involved in the democratic process and in the spirit of fairness for all, please make sure you are registered and all your details are up to date.


“Enfield had a fantastic turnout in the general election earlier this year, particularly amongst young people. Please don’t ignore the envelope that should be landing on your doormat soon.”


The form will arrive in an envelope marked Important Document Enclosed. It will contain the current information held on the Electoral Register of who lives in your property. 

If there are no changes to the information given on the form, you still need to respond either by confirming this at www.householdresponse.com/enfield  or calling 0800 197 9871 and using the security codes printed on the form, or texting NOCHANGE followed by the security code to 80212.
 
If changes need to be made, for example if someone has left or moved into the property, then residents will need to tell the Council either online at www.householdresponse.com/enfield using the security codes printed on the form or by completing and returning the form in the post using the envelope provided (postage is free).
 
If you have lost your form or need any help in understanding or completing it, please contact Enfield’s Electoral Registration Team on 020 8379 8588.


Try to respond as soon as possible so we don’t have to spend money on costly reminders or home visits – however if no response is received, Enfield Council will send someone to help you complete the form.


Remember, this is not an optional form and we must hear from you. Your vote matters.
