Isle of Anglesey County Council


Annual Canvass


In order for the electoral register to be updated and checked we carry out the annual canvass which is a voter registration campaign. We write out to every property in Ynys Môn asking you to confirm whether the details that we hold for your property on the electoral register are correct. We then publish a new electoral register on the 1 December of every year.

It is important that you read the form carefully and check that everyone that is living in your property (that is eligible to vote) is listed. If there is information missing then you need to contact us to let us know. If there are any 16/17 year olds at the property that are not listed then we need to have their details too. If all the information is correct then you also need to confirm that to us. 

Please make every effort to complete this form as soon as possible to minimise costs

There are four ways of confirming or updating the information on the Annual Enquiry Form:

*You will need the security code (2 parts) either printed at the bottom of page 1 or the top of page 2.*

  • Step 1 – Log on to www.elecreg.co.uk/ynysmon
  • Step 2 - Enter your unique security code (2 parts) and postcode.
  • Step 3 – Read the information on the screen and follow the instructions.
  • Step 4 – Continue through the process until it asks you to confirm and finish.

This method can only be used to confirm details are correct.

*You will need the security code (2 parts) either printed at the bottom of page 1 or the top of page 2.*

  • Step 1 – Call 08082 841445
  • Step 2 – Key in your unique security code
  • Step 3 – Follow the instructions over the phone

This can only be used to confirm details are correct

* You will need the security code (2 parts) either printed at the bottom of page 1 or the top of page 2.*

  • Step 1 – Text 07786 209345 followed by your 2 security codes separated by a space

To add, delete or amend details

  • Step 1 – Hand write any changes or additions on the form. If you want to delete anyone put a line through their name. If nobody is eligible to vote at the property please fill in section 2 on page 3.
  • Step 2 – Read the declaration at the bottom of page 3 and sign in the box. If you do not sign the form then we will have to send it back to you for signing.
  • Step 3 – Place in the pre-paid envelope provided. You do not need to put a stamp on it.
  • Step 4 – Put in the post or return to County Council Offices, Llangefni, LL77 7TW.

Once you have completed this process, the Electoral Registration Officer will receive this information. If further action is required then the Electoral Registration Officer will write out to the individual.

Once we have processed the information we will check it against the electoral register. If there are any additions, deletions or amendments this will be updated on the electoral register.

If you have added someone to the property then we will send them an Invitation to Register form in the post which asks them to provide further information, such as date of birth and national insurance number. This is so that we can confirm their identity.

If you tell us someone has moved away, we will send each individual a further letter so that we have confirmation that they have moved away. This is because we’re required to have two pieces of evidence to remove someone from the electoral register.

If you do not respond to the Annual Enquiry Form, then a canvasser (an officer from the council) will call at your property to confirm with you in person.
