Epping Forest District Council want to keep electoral registration costs down
Residents are being asked to keep costs to a minimum when registering on the electoral role.
Epping Forest District Council is delivering annual canvass forms to houses in the district but encouraging voters to return their information via phone, text or online as it is cheaper than post.
The processing cost of the council’s three preferred options is 12p whereas postal replies amount to 28p.
A council spokesman said: “We have about 55,000 households so the postage cost to the council would be very high."
