Elections and Electoral
Don't Lose Your Vote
You can only vote in elections if your name is on the electoral
register. On the 1st December each year, a register must be
published using information from the annual audit of all households
undertaken during September, October and November. Under new
regulations the register is also updated on a monthly basis from
December to August . This allows anyone who has moved into or
within the Borough to update their registration details.
Elections are normally held on the first Thursday in May and
European Parliamentary elections are held every five years in June,
the next one being held in June 2014.
Moved home? Coming up to 18? Just not on the Register?
All you have to do is fill in a voter registration
form . You have to sign your own form; someone else
cannot do it for you.
When you send us your form we will add you to our list of new
applications. Any elector can then object to your name being added
to the register. If this happens we will write to you.
If your application is not objected to, we will change your
details within 2 to 6 weeks of receiving your form. We will write
to tell you when your application is allowed.
The form gives each resident the opportunity to be omitted
from the EDITED VERSION of the electoral
register. The EDITED REGISTER can be sold to
people or companies who request it. The
FULL VERSION of the electoral register is used
for election purposes, for the prevention and detection of crime
and proof of residency for credit purposes.
Please remember information you have supplied for
