If you are not already registered you need to register before the deadline of midnight on Tuesday, 17 April 2018.

'It's easy and only takes 5 minutes online'

Clare Poole, our election's manager, said:

"Time is now running out to make sure you can take part in the local elections, so please take action now if you're not already registered to vote.  It's easy and only takes 5 minutes online. Councillors make important decisions on your behalf so we will be reminding residents to make sure they have their say by voting and of course to vote you need to be registered. Registering is a legal obligation but most importantly, if you aren't registered you won't be able to exercise your democratic rights at the ballot box."
