    Article: Jul 25, 2020

    To ensure that everyone who has a right to vote is on the Electoral Register, Bedford Borough Council is required by law to carry out an 'Annual Canvass' which has now started across the Borough.

    The Government has changed the process so that the Council is able to use information already held to confirm voter registration details. In many cases, this means that households will be contacted by post confirming their details are correct and they do not need to take any further action. However if you do have changes in your household that the Council is not aware of please email electoral.registration@bedford.gov.uk
