Changes to Electoral Registration - What it means for You

Canvassers knocking on your door in Maxton & District

Scottish Borders Council has canvassers calling at homes across the region until the end of March collecting information for the Register of Electors.

Householders will be asked to check a pre-printed form, make any necessary corrections and then sign it.

All canvassers will be wearing photographic identification and their identity can be confirmed by calling the Council’s Electoral Registration Officer on 01835 825100.

Mark Dickson, Electoral Registration Officer, said: “It is unusual for the Council to send anyone door-to-door, and as such we continue to urge local residents to be vigilant and protect themselves from bogus callers. The canvassers do not need to enter people’s homes and will be quite happy to wait outside while their identity is verified if a householder has any concerns.”

Further information of the change to electoral registration is available on Scottish Borders Council’s website, follow below link , while information on how residents can protect themselves from doorstep crime and bogus callers is available from the Police Scotland website follow link below.
