Make your Mark IN Salford
Details of everybody eligible to vote in the city are being collected for Salfordís Register of Electors.
Salfordís Register of Electors is a record of everybody who can vote in the city. By law, those eligible to vote must have their name on the register-even if they choose not to vote.
As part of the annual canvass, every household has been sent a canvass form, asking for details of everybody living at the address who is eligible to vote. Forms must be returned to the council no later than 8 October 2012 using the pre-paid envelope supplied.
As well as having the opportunity to vote, being on the register also helps with credit applications as companies use the register as part of the process to do credit checks.
This yearís annual canvass is being held earlier than usual because of the election for the new Police and Crime Commissioner for Greater Manchester. Only those on the register will be able to vote in this election on 15 November.
Anyone who hasnít received their canvass form or needs another copy should contact the Elections Office on 0161 793 3195.
