DDC Media Release – Voters letters dropping on doormats

Check your voter details ahead of next year’s elections

Residents are being urged to look out for letters dropping onto doormats from this week reminding them to check their voter details are up-to-date.

Daventry District Council (DDC) is sending the forms to every household in the district as part of its annual individual voter registration canvass.

The aim of the form is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so.

Failure to respond could mean a person won’t appear on the Electoral Register, which means they will also not be able to cast their vote in upcoming elections and referendums.

If residents don’t need to make any changes to the information on the form sent to them, they can confirm their existing registration by using one of the following options:

  • Visit householdresponsecom/Daventry
  • Call 0800 197 9871 – you may be charged by your mobile provider for this service
  • Text 80212 quoting ‘NOCHANGE’ – you may be charged by your mobile provider for this service.

Those who do have to make changes or add anyone onto the register can do so by either visiting www.householdresponsecom/Daventry or completing the inside of the form provided and sending back in the business reply envelope.

The register is also used by credit reference agencies to check the rating of anyone who wishes to take out credit, including a new mobile phone contract.

Residents who don’t receive their form can register online at, or contact the elections team at Daventry District Council on 01327 871100.

For further information please contact:

Ian O’Pray, Media Officer at Daventry District Council, on 01327 302310 or email

Consultation from Police & Crime Commissioner

We have now launched a public consultation regarding proposals for the governance of Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service to transfer from the Fire Authority which currently sits in Northamptonshire County Council, to the Police and Crime Commissioner, who would therefore become the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner

The government wants our emergency services to work much more collaboratively and has recently changed the law to allow this to happen. We already do this really well in Northamptonshire but there is scope for this to increase and for our fire and police services to work more closely together to keep our communities safe.

We want to ensure as many people who live and work in Northamptonshire have their say and tell us what benefits and concerns they may have. We have produced a leaflet and a short animated film to describe the proposal. Please click here to view the short video:

We have created an online survey to capture people’s views, which can be accessed at (a postal survey and easy read version are also available on request).  The survey closes on Tuesday 1st August 2017.

We would really appreciate it if you would take the time to watch the short video clip and complete our online survey, and share the link with your friends, family and community.   We would like as many people to have their voice heard as possible.

For further information or if you having any questions please contact Sam Ward, Involvement Officer at:

Views will be collated and will inform a business case that will be sent to the Home Office in mid August

Thank you for taking part in advance.

Northamptonshire Police and Crime Commissioner
