Will you be able to have your say? Deadline approaches for registering to vote

electionThere are only six days left to register to vote, and West Oxfordshire District Council is urging people to do so before the 20 April deadline.

To vote at the general, district council and town council elections on 7 May, you have to have registered to do so by midnight next Monday.

WODC’s electoral Registration Officer Keith Butler said,

“It’s been five years since the last General Election. If you want to have your say, you have to be registered to vote. Sometimes people don’t realise that they need to re-register each year.

“Anyone who has moved house in the past few months should also check that they are registered at their new address.

“Poll cards have been posted to all those already registered to vote. If you have not received one, it could mean you are not on the electoral roll and are therefore not able to vote on the 7 May.”

You can now apply to register online, with the process only taking a few minutes. To do so, visit the WODC website here.

For more information, including checking to see if you are registered and how to register if not, call WODC on 01993 861410 or visit the website.
