Voters urged to register
9:00am Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
PEOPLE in Chard and Ilminster are being urged to register to vote ahead of next year’s European Parliament elections.
Ian Clarke, returning officer at South Somerset District Council, said: “Residents should have received their electoral registration forms through the post.
“It is important 16 and 17 year olds are added to the register so they can vote but also so get a bank account or credit when they turn 18.
“Registering to vote is quick and simple. All you have to do is update the annual canvass form with details of everyone who lives in the household and is eligible to vote; and return it to us as soon as possible. It’s your vote, don’t lose it.”
If you haven’t received a registration form, call 01935-462462 or visit www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
