Have you had your letter yet?
You should receive a letter from the council this month telling you whether you need to act to make sure you’re still registered to vote.
A new system called Individual Electoral Registration is now in operation in England and Wales. Under this system, individuals are responsible for registering themselves rather than one person representing a whole household as was previously the case.
Tell your friends and family to keep an eye out for their letter. But you don’t have to wait until you receive it – if you want to, you can register online right now at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. It’s a quick and easy process – I’ve just done it myself and it took less than a minute! All you need is your National Insurance number and date of birth.
No vote, no voice – make sure you’re in!
