Annual Canvass – updating your details

The Annual Canvass for 2023 to 2024 has now started

Each year the Elections Office needs to write to every household in the city to confirm whether the details on the electoral register are correct.

From the end of July 2023 and throughout August 2023, the Elections Office will be contacting households across Birmingham to ask you to confirm who is currently living at the property and is eligible to vote.

Some households will be communicated with by email initially.

What to expect

You may receive an email from on behalf of Birmingham City Council.

The email will ask you to check and either confirm or update the details we hold about who is eligible to vote in your household. Please be assured that this email is genuine.

The email may be sent to more than one person in the household. This may happen if the Elections Office has been given email addresses for multiple members of the household.

Responding to the email is the easiest and quickest way of confirming your details.

However, the system will only accept one response per household.

What if you haven't received an email?

Don’t worry if no one in your household receives an email over the next couple of weeks.

Anyone who does not receive an email will be sent a letter through the post.

These households will still have the option to respond online via the online response service.

If you have any queries you can email us at or contact our helpline on 0121 303 2731.
