Annual voter registration canvass 2020

Islington’s Electoral Services Team will be starting the annual household canvass at the end of August 2020 and all households will be sent a form by post so that we can ensure we have the correct voter information on the electoral register.

When you receive the form please ensure that you check the details for your household and follow the instructions as some households will be required to respond. If we hold an email address for you, we may also contact you by email. The email we send to you will be sent from Islington Electoral Services. If we hold a mobile number for you, you may receive an SMS from ‘Islington’. 

How to respond

The quickest and easiest way to respond is online at Household Response. You will need the security codes that will be included on the form or in the email to do this. Where possible please respond immediately to the form online as this will save the council money. If you are unable to respond online you can either respond by telephone or by returning the completed form to Electoral Services, London Borough of Islington, Town Hall, Upper Street, London, N1 2UD.

If you do not respond straight away we will be required to send reminders and employ people to visit your property.

If you no longer live at the property

If you receive an email or sms from us and you no longer live at the property please let us know by emailing us at so that we can ensure your details are removed from the electoral register at your previous address.

Adding new names to the form or online

If you add new names to the form the new residents will not be included on the electoral register until they complete an individual application. We will send an individual application by email or by post to all new eligible residents but there is no need to wait for this as you can complete an individual application online at
