Council to contact 14,000 homes

In efforts to update the electoral roll, canvassers for North East Lincolnshire Council will be carrying out phone calls and house visits to more than 14,000 local households in the coming weeks.

The effort is part of annual checks to ensure that electoral roll records are accurate and up to date.

Letters have already been sent to every household asking residents to confirm any changes.

Most of those required to respond have got in touch to make changes to the electoral roll data, but the Council is legally required  to visit any households that should have responded but didn’t.

The Council are still awaiting responses from some 14,000 homes.

Residents can expect these visits to take place during September and October.

Canvassers will have face masks and hand sanitiser to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19, according to North East Lincolnshire Council.

Canvassers will only ask for the details of people residing at the property.

They will never ask for bank details, and will carry ID badges.

The Council will also attempt to call most households first, instead of visiting.
