Electoral registration forms sent to residents

Thu, 23 Jan 2020


Residents on the Island will receive registration forms to submit their details for the electoral register.

 

The records help to capture the information required to maintain an accurate record of people who are eligible to vote in Manx elections.

 

Forms will be posted to all households currently listed on the electoral register and to ‘The Occupier’ at properties with no registered electors.

 

It's legally required for people to respond, even if an individual chooses not to vote. 

 

Not being registered can also affect a person’s credit reference history and potentially result in an application for a mortgage, loan or mobile phone contract being refused.

 

For those who's details remain unchanged, such as the address and the list of eligible voters living at the property, people can respond in less than a minute via a telephone call, text message or online.

 

People are encouraged to respond online or by phone or text messages, rather than sending via the pre-paid envelope, as it costs more to deal with paper and postal returns.

 

Further information about the electoral registration process and who is eligible to vote can be found on the Government website or by contacting elections@gov.im or telephone 685754.
