Each year we must, by law, contact all residential properties in Wirral to ensure we have the correct eligible residents registered to vote at a property. The annual household canvass takes place between June and November. Information from the canvass is used to update the electoral register.

We do this by:

  • inviting new residents to register to vote
  • removing the names of voters who no longer live at an address
  • confirming that the details that we hold for existing properties are correct

Changes to the register during the canvass period will take effect on 1 December 2023 when the revised register is published.

The electoral register will be used for any elections held. These pages will tell you how we will contact you and what to do next.
