There are fewer than 100 days until voters go to the polls to elect a Member of Parliament for the South Leicestershire constituency. Local elections are also taking place on the same day.
Anyone not registered can do so at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
Sandra Whiles, Electoral Registration Officer for Blaby District Council, said:
“Anyone not yet registered to vote should do so as soon as possible in order for them to be able to have their say on issues that affect their lives.
“I would urge Blaby District Council residents to use National Voter Registration Day to spread the message amongst family and friends who may not have registered yet that it only takes a few minutes to complete the form online.”
Kay Jenkins, Head of English regions at the Electoral Commission, said:
“National Voter Registration Day exists because it’s important that anyone who’s eligible to be on the register, but has not yet registered, does so.
“Young people, students and people who move frequently are much less likely to be registered to vote. We’re urging them to use the day as an opportunity to get onto the electoral register.”
In the next few days all Blaby District Council properties will also receive a letter with details of who is currently on the electoral register for that property.
Anyone living at the property, but whose name is not on the letter, should register to vote at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
