The election canvass started on Friday 4 August, with 213,000 Household Enquiry Forms being delivered to each residential property in Wiltshire.
Within a week, 20% of households have responded and nearly 60% of those returns were made online or by text or telephone.
Online and telephone returns provide a real opportunity to save the council money. Responding through the automated system is straightforward and each form has it’s own security code and instructions on how to complete the online or telephone response.
Each year more and more people make use of the automated systems for the first time, have a go yourself and see what you think.
What do I do if the information on the form is correct?
To confirm your details, all you have to do is go to the response website and select Wiltshire Council, or text 80212 and use the security codes printed at the top of the form. This is the quickest and easier way to confirm your information on the form is correct. You can also return the signed form by post.
What do I do if my details are wrong?
Go online at household response and select Wiltshire Council. You can update the details of eligible voters at your address by using the security codes provided at the top of your household enquiry form to make changes. Alternatively, you can amend the form and return it in the prepaid envelope provided.
If you have added anyone to the form, they will still need to register to vote individually – find out how. You will need to provide their date of birth and national insurance number to complete their registration.
