WEST Lan­cashire Bor­ough Coun­cil is writ­ing to res­i­dents to make sure they are on the elec­toral reg­is­ter and en­ti­tled to vote.

Let­ters should be ar­riv­ing this week and any­one not cur­rently reg­is­tered can find more in­for­ma­tion in the coun­cil’s re­quest form or on­line at www.gov.uk/ reg­is­ter-to-vote.

All elec­tions due to take place this year were can­celled be­cause of the lock­down, so West Lan­cashire Bor­ough Coun­cil, Lan­cashire County Coun­cil and the Po­lice & Crime Com­mis­sioner elec­tions will be in May 2021.

Jac­qui Sin­nott-Lacey, elec­toral reg­is­tra­tions of­fi­cer, said: “Your say in lo­cal elec­tions are so im­por­tant so if you have moved house or if there are any other changes such as a fam­ily mem­ber be­com­ing 18 then please let us know.”

Be­ing on the elec­toral reg­is­ter also af­fects peo­ple’s credit scores as it pro­vides valu­able proof of their iden­tity and ad­dress to lenders.
