The deadline is approaching for people to respond to the 2019 update of the Isle of Man’s electoral register.
More than 31,000 households have so far responded to the annual canvass, which captures the information required to maintain an accurate record of eligible voters.
Reminders are being sent to non-responding households ahead of the 18 March closing date.
It is a legal requirement to provide the information requested by the Electoral Registration Officer. Not being registered can also affect a person’s credit reference history and potentially result in an application for a mortgage, loan or mobile phone contract being refused.
People can respond in less than a minute via the online, telephone or text options if their household’s information remains unchanged. The web link can also be used to notify the Government of any changes to the details printed on the form.
Responses can still be provided by completing and signing the paper form and returning it in the pre-paid envelope provided. However, people are encouraged to use a computer, tablet or mobile phone wherever possible, as it is quicker and easier for households and more cost effective for the Government.
Any household that has not yet received a registration form should contact the Electoral Registration Unit on +44 1624 685741 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
