Council issue electoral reminder
CHESHIRE East Council is reminding residents there are now three weeks left to fill in their ‘register of electors’ form, which they should have received in the post.
The 2012/2013 electoral register, used for voting and by credit reference agencies to check credit applications, will be published on October 16.
Canvassers will soon be visiting residents who have not yet responded to urge them not to lose their right to vote, and to return their forms by mid-September.
The review is happening earlier than usual this year due to the first ever Police and Crime Commissioner elections in November.
People are reminded that it is a legal requirement to fill in the form, which should be checked carefully, ensuring the names of all persons eligible to register are included.
If the details on the form are correct and there are no changes to make, people are asked to confirm them online, by freephone or by post (details are printed on the form). A two-part household security number, also included on the form, is needed to complete this.
Adding or removing names, or amendments to existing information, needs to be done by post. An explanatory leaflet is included with the form.
Residents who have not received the form or who need further information should call the help desk on 0300 123 5016.
