Residents urged to sign up for EU vote
VOTERS are urged to make sure they are registered to have a say on the EU Referendum.
Cheshire East Council is calling on residents to register as an elector ahead of the national referendum on June 23 on whether or not the United Kingdom should remain in the European Union.
Polling cards are being posted to adult residents this week.
Those who are not registered could also miss out on being able to vote in the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) election on May 5.
Chief executive Mike Suarez, returning officer for elections in the borough, said: “Casting your vote is the lifeblood of a healthy and vibrant democracy and you can’t vote if you aren’t registered. It’s really important that people don’t miss out on the opportunity to vote and have a voice on the important local, national and international issues that affect everyone.”
If you have registered but not received your polling card, ring the council on 0300 123 5016.
To register go online to gov.uk/register-to-vote. The closing date for the receipt of applications to register your vote for the PCC election is Monday, April 18.
