I have received a letter from the city council enclosing the Household Enquiry Form on which 'The Occupier' must provide information on all who live at this address in order to check who is eligible to register to vote. I have no issue with providing the information - there is a possible fine of £1,000 for not doing so - and have used the householdresponse.com facility to do this online. My wife no longer lives here and will not be coming back. She lives in a different part of the city (electoral ward and constituency) so I have removed her name. I thought that there might be a routine for updating her address details as well but there was not. It is a moot point anyway. A person who needs turning round to face the right way in the booth, has to have the pencil placed into her hand and then reminded to put a cross in the chosen box (if, in the moment, she can understand the options) seems barely capable of making an informed choice of who to vote for. Two questions crossed my mind. Firstly, do care homes have the same duty to confirm their 'household' residents? Secondly, is a person with advanced dementia still considered eligible to vote even though they are unable to make anything other than the simplest of choices?
