Don't forget to return your electoral forms, says Corby Council
Corby Council is asking residents to return their electoral registration forms to make sure they have correct details.
The forms, otherwise known as Household Enquiry Forms, should have reached every property in the borough last week.
The council needs to confirm if the names of every person residing in the property is listed on the form and if there are any changes required to your details.
Any person aged 16 or above who is not listed on the Household Enquiry Form will need to be added and will be sent an invitation to register to vote, unless they go online to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
Residents have been reminded that once invited to register to vote, you are legally bound to do so and failure to register could result in an £80 fine.
A council spokesman said: “Follow-up visits will be made from mid-September, so please return your form promptly if you do not wish to have a personal visit from us.
“You will find listed on the form, all the methods in how you can return the information.”
