Deadline approaching to respond to update of electoral register

by LC

The deadline is fast approaching for people to respond to this year’s update of the Isle of Man electoral register.

The annual canvass is necessary to capture changes of address and any revisions to the list of householders eligible to vote or serve on a jury.

Residents are responsible for keeping their entries up to date and individuals cannot vote in House of Keys or local authority elections unless they are on the register. Not being registered can also affect a person’s credit reference history and potentially result in an application for a mortgage, loan or mobile phone contract being refused.

Reminder forms have been issued to households who have yet to respond to the 2017 annual canvass. Anyone who has not received an electoral registration form should email elections@gov.im or call 685754 to request one.

People should complete and sign the form, detailing any changes in their household’s circumstances, and return it to the Electoral Registration Unit in the pre-paid envelope provided.

The deadline for responses to the 2017 annual canvass is Saturday 17 June.

Further information about the electoral registration process and who is eligible to vote can be found on the Government website.
