Make sure you’re registered to vote in time for the local elections this May
On Thursday 3 May residents in London Borough of Hillingdon will go to the polls to have their say on who represents them at a local level.
Local government elections select councillors, who are responsible for making decisions on running services in your local area. These include housing, education, transport, planning, parks, leisure, fire and public safety, social care and waste management.
In order to vote in this important election, residents must be on the electoral register. With only one week to go until the deadline to register to vote in local elections the Union is urging residents who have not registered at their current address to make sure they are registered in time.
The deadline to register to vote is midnight on Tuesday 17 April. Anyone can apply online at gov.uk/register-to-vote. It takes just five minutes.
Adrian Green, Electoral Commission Regional Manager for London, said:
“If you have turned 18, or if you have moved home recently, it’s particularly important that you act to ensure that you are registered. It takes just five minutes online and means that you can take part in this important election.”
If you were eligible to vote in last year’s general election and your details have not changed, you will still be registered to vote. If in doubt, check your details by giving us a call.”
