Each household in the East Riding will receive communication in the next few days to check the details of the members of the household.

Some will receive an e-mail and others will receive paper forms.

As the electoral services team is continuing to work remotely, residents are urged to respond to the annual canvass using one of the following methods and not to try and return their paper form:

○ Visit www.registersecurely.com/EastRiding

○ Call 0800 975 8346 to make an automated response

○ Text the security codes which are on the letter or in the e-mail to 07860 017763, followed by the words ‘No Changes’

If the electoral details are correct, any of the above response methods can be used.

If there are changes to report, then the secure website www.registersecurely.com/EastRiding has to be used.

Darren Stevens, director of corporate resources at the council, said: “It’s important that residents keep an eye out for messages from East Riding of Yorkshire Council, so we can make sure we have the right details on the electoral register for every address in the area.

“To make sure you are able to have your say at elections, simply follow the instructions.”
