One week left to register to vote in local elections

Friday 7 April 2017

With only one week to go until the deadline to register to vote in local elections, Allerdale Borough Council is urging residents to make sure they are registered in time.

On Thursday 4 May voters in Allerdale will go to the polls for local Cumbria County Council elections. The deadline to register to vote is midnight on Thursday 13 April.

Anyone not registered to vote at their current address can register online at gov.uk/register-to-vote

Andrew Seekings Electoral Registration Officer for Allerdale Borough Council said:

“With only one week to go, time is running out to make sure you can take part in the elections on Thursday 4 May. These elections are an opportunity to have a say on who represents local people on issues that directly affect day-to-day life here in Allerdale. But if you’re not registered by 13 April, you won’t be able to vote.”

Emma Hartley, Head of Campaigns at the Electoral Commission, said:

“Our research shows that nearly a third of people think that if you are old enough to vote then you are automatically registered, but in fact everyone must register themselves. Registering to vote is easy to do online and means that you can take part in these important elections; so make sure you are registered to vote by the deadline.”
