Don’t Lose your Vote! Annual Canvass Starts 8 August 2023

Cotswold District Council is starting its Annual Canvass to check everyone’s voting details are up to date and correct.

As residents in the District, you are being urged to check your electoral registration details or risk losing your chance to vote on decisions that affect you.

Recent home movers in particular are asked to check their details.

The first communication will be an email sent from 8 August and the Council is encouraging people to respond to that email so that it is not necessary to send a follow-up posted letter.

The Council will then be contacting households via post. There will also be council staff door knocking as part of the engagement. They will carry formal identification.

With Police and Crime Commissioner elections taking place in 2024 and a general election due to be called before 17 December 2024, this is an opportunity for you to make sure you can take part.

If you want to register, the easiest way is online at
