Wokingham Borough Council is encouraging anyone not yet registered to vote, to take advantage of the National Voter Registration Drive between 1 and 7 February and go online to register.
On Thursday 5 May voters in the Wokingham Borough will head to the polls to elect borough councillors and a Police and Crime Commissioner for the Thames Valley. Anyone who isn’t registered to vote won’t be able to take part and have their say.
The deadline to register to vote in these elections is Monday 18 April. Whilst there is still time, don’t delay registering. The good news is that it only takes a few minutes to register online by visiting: GOV.UK website.
Andrew Moulton, returning officer for Wokingham Borough Council, said: "Anyone not yet registered to vote should do so as soon as possible so they can have their say on issues that affect their day-to-day lives.
"I’d urge people living in the Wokingham Borough to use the National Voter Registration Drive to spread the message amongst family and friends that it only takes a few minutes to complete the form and register to vote online."
Anyone who doesn’t have access to the internet, or would like more information, should contact the borough council’s electoral services helpline on (0118) 974 6522 / 6523.
