Register to vote in time for May local elections

In order to vote in the 2 May election you must be on the electoral register. 

If you were registered to vote in the last election and your details have not changed, you will still be registered to vote. 

The deadline to register for this election is midnight on Friday, April 12.

Local government elections select councillors who are responsible for making decisions on running services in the district and borough.

Phillippa Saray, Electoral Commission Regional Manager for the East and Southeast of England, added: “If you have recently turned 18 or moved home, it is particularly important that you act to ensure that you are registered to vote. It takes just five minutes online and means that you can take part in this important election.”
