NEW Forest residents are being sent a letter telling them about the biggest change to the electoral registration system in nearly 100 years.

A new system is being introduced to replace the system where the “head of household” registered everyone living in a property. Now, each individual will be responsible for registering themselves.

Many residents will automatically move on to the new electoral register. However, some will need to take action to join or remain on it, which they will now also be able to do online.
