The Police and Crime Commissioner elections are taking place on Thursday, November 15, and residents in Cheshire East are being urged to make sure they don’t miss the chance to have their say.
To be able to vote, you must be on the electoral register.
From October 19, polling cards will be sent to everyone on the electoral register. If you don’t receive one then there is the chance you’re not on the list.
If you are not yet registered to vote – and want to vote in this election –the deadline for receipt of completed applications is October 31.
For further details of how to register, phone the Cheshire East helpline on: 0300 123 5016 or visit: www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
Councillor Les Gilbert, Cabinet member in charge of corporate policy, said: “Some people think that if you are paying Council Tax you are registered to vote – this isn’t the case.
“I would urge all those eligible to vote to ensure they are on the electoral register so residents can take part in this important election.”
