East Riding residents are reminded to make sure they are on the electoral register so that they do not miss out on the chance to vote in the local elections taking place on Thursday, 5 May.
It is not possible to vote without being on the electoral register and the deadline for registering in time for the May elections (including the town/parish council elections and the national referendum on the AV voting system which are also on 5 May) is Thursday, 14 April.
Electoral registration forms must be completed and returned to the council by this date. Anyone who has not received or been included on the household form sent last autumn should contact the council’s electoral services on (01482) 393311/2/3 or visit their local council customer service centre.
Contact details and an electoral registration form can also be found and completed online both on the council’s website www.eastriding.gov.uk (follow links from ‘Local Elections’ on front page or click on A-Z ‘Electoral Services’) and on the Electoral Commission’s website www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
Registered electors will have receive poll cards including those in receipt of a postal vote.
The council would also like to remind people that the last day for requesting a new postal or proxy vote is also Thursday, 14 April (by 5pm).
The statement of nominations with details of all the candidates has now been published and is available on the council website.
