By now all households in South Gloucestershire should have received a form asking you to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register for those living at your address is correct.
The form is part of South Gloucestershire’s annual voter registration canvass and aims 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.
With Police and Crime Commissioner elections taking place in May 2016, this is an opportunity for you to make sure that when the elections take place you will easily be able to take part. Anyone that wants to vote must be registered. To make sure you are able to have your say at the elections next year, simply check the form when it arrives and return it as promptly as possible.
It’s particularly important that anyone who has moved address recently looks out for the form and checks whether they are registered.
If you’re not currently registered, we’ll send you information explaining how to do this or you can go online to apply to register at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
Registering is now easier than ever with the online system of registration.
Any residents who have any questions can contact the electoral services team by calling 01454 863030 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
