Make sure you are registered to vote!

The annual update of the register of electors is about to begin. Cotswold District Council urges you to update your details as soon as possible so you do not lose your right to vote.

From 1 October we will be sending out forms to all households in the district asking residents to update their details for the electoral register which will be published in February 2014.

Residents who are not on the register will be unable to vote in the European Parliamentary Elections in May 2014. They may also be refused credit.

Nigel Adams, Electoral Registration Officer at CDC, said:

“Registering to vote couldn’t be easier and residents will be familiar with the benefits of being registered.

“We understand the time pressures that all households are under and I would strongly recommend that residents use the quick and easy telephone or internet services as soon as they receive the form to ensure they are registered. These methods of registering also save money.”

If the information on the form is all correct, you can confirm your details by using the telephone or internet services. You can also use these services to request a postal vote application and to opt out of the edited version of the register."
