Voter registration forms will be delivered to every home within the city from this week. All you need to do is complete and return your form as soon as you can.
The council wants to make sure the electoral register is as up-to-date as possible in time for any elections to be held during 2014, including the European Parliament elections next May. Although there is no general election until 2015, there is a always a chance of local elections happening almost every year that will affect you, your local area, and those that represent you, which is why it is better to be prepared and register now. All the information required about upcoming elections can be found on the council’s website, www.brighton-hove.gov.uk
Brighton & Hove City Council Electoral Services Manager, Claire Wardle said: “Registering to vote is quick and simple. All you have to do is update the annual canvass form with details of everyone who lives in the household and is eligible to vote; and return it to us as soon as possible. If you are a student, you can register at both your term-time and home addresses. It’s your vote, don’t lose it.”
If you have not received a form by the end of November please contact the elections team on 291999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
