Door knocking for electoral registration

Residents who have not completed their electoral registration form yet will soon receive a visit from one of Daventry District Council’s canvassers. 

In July this year Daventry District Council (DDC) sent forms to every household in the district as part of its annual individual voter registration canvass. People need to reply to stay on the electoral register so that they can vote in future elections.  

Those who have not already responded will soon receive a visit from one of the Council’s canvassers. All the canvassers carry identification.

If people are at home when one of the canvassers visits they can complete their registration with them on their doorstep. 

Residents who are not in will receive a card to let them know the canvassers have been and to remind them to complete their registration form.

If residents do not need to make any changes to the information on the form sent to them, they can confirm their existing registration by using one of the following options:

  • Visit and log on using the security code supplied on their letter. 
  • Call 0800 197 9871 and supply the security code from their letter (mobile providers may charge for this service)
  • Text NOCHANGE followed by the security code on their letter to 80212 (mobile providers may charge for this service)


Those who do have to make changes or add anyone onto the register can do so by either visiting or completing the inside of the form provided and sending it back in the business reply envelope.

Failure to respond could mean a person will not appear on the Electoral Register, which means they will also not be able to cast their vote in upcoming elections and referendums. 

The register is also used by credit reference agencies to check the rating of anyone who wishes to take out credit, including a new mobile phone contract.

Residents who have lost or misplaced their form, or who need a security code in order to respond can contact the elections team at Daventry District Council on 01327 871100.
