Register to vote

Household Enquiry Form 2019

Household Enquiry Forms (HEFs) have been sent to all residential addresses within the borough to check who is eligible to register to vote. We are legally required to do this every year.

Received an email for an address at which you no longer live?


If you have received an email from us regarding an address you are no longer resident at please complete our online form below so we can begin the process of removing your name. 

Removal Form if you are no longer resident

 

Need to confirm the details for your current address?

If you are resident at the address on your form (or email) a response is required, even if there are no changes to make. 

The easiest way to respond to the form is online. It takes just a few minutes:

  • Visit www.registersecurely.com/RBK
  • Enter your security code Part 1 and Part 2
  • Confirm the residents in your household, add/remove names where necessary, then submit (you only need the names and nationalities to provide the details of new residents)

If the details contained in the form are correct and you do not need to make any changes you can call 0800 0608 793 and when prompted enter part 1 and part 2 of your security code.


Alternatively you can complete the form and post it back to us in the envelope provided.
 

The Household Enquiry Form is not a registration form but you do need to complete it. The information you provide will enable us to send a separate registration form to all the people living at this address who are eligible and need to register. Any new residents who are eligible and need to register to vote can go online to register at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote once the household response has been submitted.
