Annual Canvass of Households

  • Helpline 0141 287 4444

Every year the Electoral Registration Officer is required to conduct a canvass of all households in Glasgow to establish who is eligible to vote.

When you receive your letter check the details we hold on the register are correct and if a response is required please do so as soon as possible.

New legislation was introduced and the canvass process has changed this year so please read your letter and follow the instructions for responding. Only respond where there is a requirement to do so.

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) our front line services are running at a reduced capacity. Our online service is fully operational and will allow you to provide a response where required and make any required changes to your household details. Your letter will detail how to access this service.

Further new legislation was introduced on 3 August 2020 which extended the voting franchise in Scotland. This now means that you can register to vote if you are resident and aged 14 years and over and are:

  • a British, Irish or EU citizen

  • a qualifying Commonwealth citizen who has leave to enter or remain in the UK, or who does not require such leave.

  • a qualifying foreign national who has permission to enter or stay in the UK, or who does not require such permission
