Annual Canvass

Icon information white

Did you receive an email from [email protected]?

This is a genuine Harrow Council email which shows you how you can register to vote.

Between July and December each year, we conduct the Annual Canvass to confirm who is eligible to register at each address in Harrow.

Legislation has resulted in changes in the way we will conduct the Annual Canvass.

We will be conducting a data matching exercise for each household against information held by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

Depending on the outcome of this exercise, all residential properties in Harrow will either be sent an email or form to confirm the occupants of the property.

To ensure that we have the most up to date information on who is eligible to register, every residential property who has been asked to respond will need to do so, whether changes are required or not.

The email/form will allow us to identify any new residents to whom we can send an Individual Registration Form.  

When will I receive the email or form?

You may have already received the email, if you haven't you will receive either an email or a form during July and August. The email will be sent from [email protected]

What do you need to do?

When you receive your email or form, you need to check the information and confirm if any changes need to be made using the relevant method below:

  • To make any changes visit household response
  • If there are no changes please send an SMS message (as per the instructions in the email or form) or call our automated telephone services on 0800 197 9871

What happens if I don’t respond?

If you don’t respond to the email or form, we will send you a reminder. We may also call you if we hold your phone number.

New residents

If you are a new resident or have recently moved between properties in Harrow, and you receive an email or form please respond to it.
