Broxtowe Borough Council has issued a notice to residents to inform them that they will not be able to complete their voter registration forms this month.
The 2013 annual canvass has been postponed until October because of the introduction of Individual Electoral Registration (IER) next year.
IER will mean that voters are required to register to vote individually, rather than by household as they have done previously.
The council is asking all its residents to look out for the forms in October, and fill them in.
