Annual canvass

From August 2022 we will be carrying out a canvass of all properties in the borough to make sure we have the correct voters registered at each property. 

We will do this by contacting every address.

  • Election Services Canvassers will be visiting all non-responding properties between 5 September and 30 October 2022 to obtain the outstanding required information
  • If we hold an email address on our records you may receive an email from
  • If we hold a mobile phone number on our records, you may receive a SMS text message from ‘Havering’
  • We may also contact you by post

We will be contacting properties in different phases, so not all addresses will receive something from us at the same time.

This information is then used to invite unregistered residents to register to vote, and to remove names of electors who are no longer living at the address.

Additions and amendments made to the electoral register during the household canvass will take effect upon publication of the revised Register of Electors on 1 December 2022.   

How to respond

The quickest and easiest way to respond is online using our household update service.

You will need the security codes on the form or email we sent to complete this.

Where possible please use the online response service.

If you do not have access to the internet, you can complete the form and return it by post to Civica Election Services, London N81 1ER.

Any new residents who are eligible to vote should register to vote as soon as possible. 

Please note, the canvass form is not registration form.
