Annual Electoral Registration Canvass

Derbyshire Dales District Council advise that the annual canvass is about to start which is a check on the accuracy and completeness of the electoral register. They will be sending around 21,000 canvass letters to Derbyshire Dales households and 15,000 emails to electors who they hold an email address for. These will start to arrive from 12 July 2023.

The email will come from

Residents should monitor their junk/spam folder as some email providers may identify this correspondence as junk mail. The hybrid system of sending out letters and emails is designed to reduce the cost of the annual canvass.

If the canvass form or email that the household receives states that a response is required or the information held is incorrect or requires updating they should respond as soon as possible. Full instructions on how to respond will be found within the form or email. If there are new electors in a household their names should be added to any response.

Households should remember to add the names of any 16 or 17 year olds as they can and should register to vote (but they will not be able to vote until their 18th birthday).

If any households are unsure as to what to do or need any help completing their response they should contact the District Council by calling 01629 761335 or emailing
