Local residents to receive important voter registration informationPublished Wednesday, 26th August 2015
Households in the Melton Borough will be receiving a form asking residents to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register, for those living at their address is correct.
This is part of Melton Borough Council’s annual voter registration canvass.
The aim of the form is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so. The best way to register to vote is online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
With Police and Crime Commissioner elections taking place in May 2016, this is an opportunity for residents to make sure that when the elections take place they will easily be able to take part.
Kay Jenkins, Head of English regions at the Electoral Commission said:
“The annual canvass is an opportunity for people to easily check whether they’re registered. It’s essential for a healthy democracy that everyone who is entitled to vote is able to, and for those who need to register it is now easier than ever with the online system of registration.”
“If you have changed address in the last year, it’s particularly likely that you will need to register at your new address, so check the form as soon as it arrives.”
Any residents who have any questions can visit the Council website www.melton.gov.uk or contact Customer Services at Melton Borough Council by email, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01662 502502 .
