Dear Editor, May I remind readers to keep an eye out for the electoral registration forms which local authorities are currently sending out to households?
With a General Election coming, now is the time to make sure that you complete the form. Remember – you can’t vote if you’re not on the register, even if you do pay council tax, or have voted before.
It’s also worth thinking about whether you can get to a polling station to vote in person, or whether to apply in advance for a postal vote or a proxy vote (this is where someone you trust votes on your behalf).
To find out more, why not visit the independent elections watchdog’s website: at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
Make sure nothing stops you from having your say on who represents you.
The Electoral Commission.
