The General Election is every 5 years, with the last election being held on 22 September 2016 see our previous elections results page for details.
The Cabinet Office is promoting a new process to enable people to respond electronically to the annual update of the electoral register.
Heads of households who have previously consented to their email address being used for electoral registration purposes will be invited to take part.
An email will be sent from the Cabinet Office during November 2019 that includes part one of the household security code.
Participants will be invited to respond in order to receive a second email with part two of the security code.
Both codes will allow people to either confirm or update their household’s electoral registration details via an online portal.
The e-canvass is aimed at making the process quicker and easier for the public, as well as more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly for Government.
Those who do not respond via email by 5pm on Friday 6 December 2019 will receive a paper form in January 2020 as part of the annual postal canvass.
The canvass process helps to capture the information required to maintain an accurate record of people who are eligible to vote in an election.
