Watford BID Ballot opens!

The Watford BID Ballot is open from today (8th January) until Thursday 4th February 2021, allowing business to vote on a proposed second term of Watford BID from 2021-2026.

We are approaching the end of our first 5-year term operating as Watford BID. The growth & development of Watford town centre in those 5 years has been remarkable, largely thanks to our business community working together. This is only the beginning of a longer-term goal, and we are urging our levy payers to vote ‘YES’ for a second 5-year BID term.

Our 2021-2026 Business Plan is available to download, showcasing the long-term plans for Watford:


  1. You should receive one ballot paper for each property that you are eligible to vote for by post. If you do not, please email:

  2. Please check that each ballot paper has its own return envelope.

  3. Complete the ballot paper putting a cross (x) beside your choice to retain the BID for a further five years or not.

  4. Write your name in BLOCK capitals and your POSITION in the business and then add your SIGNATURE.

  5. Each ballot paper must be returned in its own separate envelope.

  6. Return your completed ballot paper(s) by post in the pre-paid envelope provided. Or alternatively it can be returned by hand to Watford Town Hall.

All ballot papers are sent out to the registered address of the property which you are paying the levy on behalf of. If you have not received your ballot paper or have any other requests, please email the details to
