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.
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.
Due to this change, there will be no monthly electoral register updates prior to the register being published, so it is vital that residents fill in and return this form as soon as they can. People are reminded that it is a legal requirement to do so.
The form should be checked carefully, ensuring the names of all persons eligible to register are included on the form.
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.
