Electoral Registration and Voting: Frequently Asked Questions

You should contact the Elections Office if you have changed your name. If you change your name between November and August you will need to send a letter and proof of the new name to the Electoral Registration Officer. If you change your name just before or during the Annual Canvass, you can send us the annual Voter Registration form to update your record on the Electoral Register.
