Don’t lose your vote in the European
The European Parliamentary elections and local elections in some areas are just 4 weeks away, but many people will be unable to have their say unless they take action now.
It’s simple: if you are not on the electoral register, you won’t be able to vote. If that’s you, why not take five minutes now to print off a registration form at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk? It’s really important to return your form to your local authority by the deadline of Tuesday 6 May if you want to want to cast a vote in the elections.
Research by the UK Electoral Commission has shown that 44% of those not registered to vote mistakenly believe that they are – so it’s also really important to double check. You can do this by calling or emailing the electoral registration officer at your local authority. If you’re not sure who this is, you can use the postcode search on www.aboutmyvote.co.uk to find their details.
If you’re confident that you’re already on the register, why not use this chance to join the campaign and spread the message amongst your friends and family?
Tweet a link and tell your friends and family that printable registration forms are available from www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
Remember: the deadline to register to vote is Tuesday 6 May. It’s your vote, don’t lose it.
