I'm Italian and I live in a shared house in the UK.
I've received an e-mail from Cambridge City Council electoral services which starts like this:
We recently sent a letter to ask householders to confirm who is eligible to register to vote at your address in Cambridge.
Please take action so that we can check who is eligible to register to vote at your address. Please complete the steps below by 30/08/2021 so that we do not have to send further reminders or ask one of our electoral canvassers to make contact with your address.
Then a link is provided for me to click so that I can edit or add new electors to the list of already registered electors.
At the moment the list contains only 3 people (including me) out of the 7 that currently live in this shared house I live in, because me and the other two are apparently the only 3 that have cared about reading letters and taking action accordingly.
As regards the other 4, they have apparently been ignoring this letters and/or have not taken action to set everything up as regards them living in this household.
If I was to add them to the list, I'd have to, at the minimum, add this information for each of them
- E-mail address and/or telephone number
and I might not know anything else than the name. Not to say that, assuming I know the phone number/e-mail of one of them, that one could tell me "Why did you insert my info without my permission?". And no, I don't wish to go in each room in the house to let them know of this letter from the Council.
Therefore my question is: am I legally required to complete the form on their behalf? Or can I just press Continue and confirm only the 3 names that are listed?
Should I just write to
[email protected] and let them know that there's other 4 people in the house I don't know e-mail/phone number of?
