The Electoral Registration Officer (ERO) must carry out an annual canvass of all households each year, to ensure that the Electoral Register is complete and accurate.

The law requires that every household must be contacted by the ERO to request information about who is resident at the address to ensure that all eligible electors are registered to vote.
