Register to vote

Household Enquiry Form 2018

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.

A response is required, even if there are no changes to make. 

Canvassers will be making visits between Friday 14 September and Wednesday 7 November to properties that have not responded.

They will have the details for your property either on a tablet device or paper form and ask you to confirm if there are any changes that need to be made. They may also have Individual Electoral Registration Forms for specific members of your household. They will have a Kingston Council photographic ID badge that proves they are working for the Electoral Services Team.

If you are not at home when the visit is made they may leave a card detailing how you can respond or another form for you to complete. If you would like to verify if someone from our team has made a visit to your property please call 020 8547 5026 or email [email protected]

The easiest way to complete the form is online. It takes just a few minutes, you will need the security codes from your form:

- Visit www.registersecurely.com/RBK
- Enter your security code Part 1 and Part 2
- Confirm the residents in your household and submit (you only need their names and nationalities)

If the details contained in the form are correct and you do not need to make any changes you can call 08000 608 793 and when prompted enter part 1 and part 2 of your security code from your form.

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

The HEF 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 to vote can go online to register at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote once the household response has been submitted.
