Cardiff Council

Annual canvass

Every year we contact all Cardiff residential properties to confirm the information on the Electoral Register.  

This process is called the “annual canvass”. It is a legal requirement to keep the Electoral Register complete and accurate, and the Electoral Commission monitors the process.

We publish the updated Electoral Register every December. 

You will receive an email or letter from us in July. Complete the form and let us know if you:
  • move home or to student accommodation, 
  • change your name, 
  • would like to change the way you vote, 
  • would like to change your Open Register preference. 

You will receive a reminder if you need to respond to our email or letter but do not do it.

If we do not hear from you, we will visit you to update your information.
