Aylesbury Vale District Council’s recent 'Got a minute' electoral registration campaign aimed to get residents to register electronically by explaining that it takes less than 60 seconds to register by phone, text or online. Tactics achieved our highest ever electronic registration of 43%. It saved AVDC opening, scanning and filing the equivalent of 63 Royal Mail trays of post and achieved a reduction of one and a half weeks work for a member of staff, plus storage and eventually shredding of the forms costing £500. Saving on postage (compared with our charges for texting) amounted to £2,200.
