The Annual Canvass and Rolling Register explained

The Annual Canvass

The Annual Canvass is conducted every year to ensure that the Register of Electors remains complete and accurate. In order to do this the Council delivers a canvass form to every household in the District.

The last annual canvass was carried out from 1 October 2013 until February 2014 and the revised Electoral Register was published on 17th February 2014 and will be in force until 30 November 2014.

Rolling Registration

Rolling registration allows new residents to be added to the electoral register on a monthly basis outside of the annual canvass period. This happens at the beginning of each month during the months outside of the annual canvass, as long as the individual making the application is qualified and completes an electoral registration form. Deletions and amendments are also made each month.

Applications for registration must be received by the Electoral Services office by a cut off date each month. Applications received on or before the cut off date will be included on the register on the first working day of the following month.
