Telephone calls from 'Lancaster Electoral Services'
Residents in the Lancaster district are being warned to be on their guard for phone calls from people claiming to be working on behalf of 'Lancaster Electoral Services'
Lancaster City Council is issuing this warning after learning a local resident has been contacted by telephone by a caller who said that they worked for 'Lancaster Electoral Services' and asked a number of questions concerning residency. Some of these questions had no bearing on electoral registration or the annual electoral registration canvass.
The council is currently conducting an annual canvass of residents for the electoral register, but this is completed on a personal basis by staff calling at the home of residents. The council does not cold call residents by telephone.
Anyone with concerns over the identify of a caller should telephone 01524 582000.
