Electoral Registration reminder

Electoral Registration reminder
17 September 2018

Reminders have been sent to households in Orkney that have so far not returned this year’s Electoral Registration forms.

Annual household forms were sent last month to properties across Orkney. They are used to keep the electoral register for Orkney up to date. Completing and returning the forms is important in ensuring that eligible residents can take part in future elections.

Dennis Stevenson, Electoral Registration Officer for Orkney, said: “If you receive a reminder, it is important that you respond to it to let us know that either there have been changes to the household, or that the details shown are correct.

"I would like to encourage householders to respond either online, by text or phone, or by returning the form by post.

“This form gives details of all the existing electors in each household and any new electors in the property need to be added when completing the form, including those who will turn 16 during the next year.”

Anyone with any queries should contact the Electoral Registration Office on 01856 876222 or by email.
