The Electoral Registration Officer has a duty to make sure the details held on the register of electors are up to date. This is done by sending a Household Enquiry Form to every residential property within the Borough.
Initial forms will be sent out mid August. If we do not receive a form back a reminder will be sent out by mid September. By the beginning of October if we still have not received a form, householders will receive a personal visit during the first 2/3 weeks of the month.
The form is not a registration form but you do need to complete it.
If there is no change to the details printed on the form you can respond by:
Security codes will be printed on your form.
If you need to make any changes to details shown on the form you can respond by:
The Household Enquiry Form is an enquiry form only, new people living at the address will also need to complete a separate registration form, where required forms will be sent by post or email (if an email address has been supplied).

The revised Register is published on 1st December each year and is on display at Dudley Council Plus, Castle Street, Dudley. Residents of the Borough are then able to check that they are correctly included on the Register.
If someone moves during the currency of the register they can easily register for the new address, see Registering to Vote.
