Don’t lose your vote – Residents in Allerdale urged to check voter registration details
Households in Allerdale 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 Allerdale Borough Council’s annual voter registration canvass.
The aim of the form is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date as well as identify any residents who are not registered and encourage them to do so. Most households will not be required to respond, however if a response is required please follow the instructions on the letter.
If a response is required, responses can be made by phone, by text or online. If you are unable to use the online service to report any changes, please email email@example.com or call 0303 123 1731.
Residents are encouraged to respond (where required) as soon as possible to avoid receiving a reminder letter and a visit from a voter registration officer.
If you have recently moved into the borough or have moved house, you will need to re-register. Those who have recently turned 18 should also check they are registered. It is easier and quicker to register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
Andrew Seekings, Electoral Registration Officer, said: “Please don’t delay registering to vote. Although there are no planned elections in the near future, recent years have seen major elections announced with very little notice, and there may be local by-elections called, so make sure your voice is heard.”
