Deadline for returning Electoral Registration Forms approaching

West Berkshire Council want to thank the 44,222 households in West Berkshire that have already responded to the Electoral Registration Forms which were sent to properties several weeks ago. This, however, means we are still waiting for replies from more than 23,000 properties. That’s more than 34% of households yet to complete their forms.

Completing the form is really important, and a legal requirement. The purpose of the form is to keep the electoral register up-to-date. This is used for ensuring your entitlement to vote and credit checking. As a council, we really need to reduce the number of paper forms that are sent back for processing, especially those that require no changes to be made.

To help us save money on unnecessary reminders, please use one of the automated response methods before 27thSeptember. Choose which method suits your circumstances from the options on the form.

It is really easy to reply online, by telephone or via text and takes just a few moments of your time.

If we don’t receive your reply, we are legally bound to send you at least one reminder.

Please help us keep costs down and respond as soon as possible.

If you have any queries, please call the helpline number on: 01635 519464 or email: [email protected]
