Vale Council canvassers could be calling
12:20pm Sunday 16th September 2012 in News
HOUSEHOLDERS in the Vale will be visited by house-to-house canvassers working to update the electoral register in time for the Police and Crime Commissioner elections on November 15.
The canvassers, working on behalf of the Vale Council, will be calling at properties from Saturday, September 15 to Sunday, September 30.
Vale Council electoral registration officer, Rebecca Light, said: "We'd like to let Vale residents know our canvassers will be soon working in the area, especially as there have been reports of criminals posing as canvassers to steal personal information in other areas of Wales.
"Our canvassers will only ask for the names of people, over the age of 16, who are permanently resident at houses that have not returned the annual canvass form. Canvassers may also ask residents for their nationality and maybe date of birth if they are 16 or 17.
"They will not ask for further personal information such as national insurance numbers.
"If anyone has any concerns about a canvasser please call the council contact centre on 01446 700111."
