The annual canvass has begun, to ensure all eligible voters in Gravesham are up-to-date.

The Annual Canvass to ensure all eligible voters details in the Borough of Gravesham are up-to-date has begun.

More than 25,000 residents will receive an email on Monday 11 July 2022 asking them to check their details are correct. Letters will be distributed to other households in the district who have not signed up to receive an email between 8 - 30 August. The letters will offer clear instructions on whether a response is required from the household.

Residents receiving an email containing this information can be assured it is genuine.

Residents can respond online at,via text or by posting back the completed form using the information provided in the letter.

Each household is required by law to make sure that the details on the form are correct. To enable this, more Annual Canvass work will take place throughout 2022, including Canvass Forms and door knocking. These later stages will only apply to those who have not responded.

Residents are urged to respond as soon as possible to the form. Having accurate information on the electoral roll can help personal credit ratings.

Most canvass forms will list the details of who is currently on the electoral register at the address. Properties where no one is registered to vote will receive a blank form.

All eligible residents need to be included on the form. Eligible residents include people who are aged 16 years or over, British, Irish or EU citizens and Commonwealth citizens who have leave to remain in the UK, or do not require leave to remain in the UK.

More information can be found on the Annual Canvass page.
