Residents in Daventry District are being reminded to respond to letters checking that their details on the electoral register are up-to-date.
Daventry District Council has sent out the forms to every household in the district as part of its annual individual voter registration canvass.
With local district and parish as well as Police and Crime Commissioner elections taking place in May 2016, this is an opportunity for residents to make sure that they will easily be able to take part.
The aim of the form is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so.
The register is also used by credit reference agencies to check the rating of anyone who wishes to take out credit, including a new mobile phone contract.
Simon Bovey, acting deputy electoral registration officer at Daventry District Council, said: “Anyone that wants to vote must be registered.
“To make sure you are able to have your say at the elections next year, simply check the form and respond as soon as possible. It’s your vote so don’t lose it.”
Residents who don’t receive their form can register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote, or contact the elections team at Daventry District Council on 01327 871100.
