Returning Officer Colin Everett said:
“The Council’s very experienced and knowledgeable Electoral Registration Team
are organising the elections and providing advice and information to voters and
to prospective candidates.
It is important that people use their right to vote and ensure that are not
disenfranchised because they are not registered to take part in the coming
elections. Voting also ensures you have a say on local issues and services,
whilst being on the electoral register can maintain your credit rating.
“People should not assume that they are able to vote just because just because
they are registered for other things such as Council Tax. If in doubt,
residents should contact our Electoral Registration Team to check whether they
are registered to vote.”
Registering to vote only takes a few minutes: register online at
www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or telephone the Electoral Registration Team on
