Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff re­porter

Res­i­dents in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are be­ing urged to en­sure they are on the elec­toral reg­is­ter.

Young peo­ple who will be aged 16 by Novem­ber 30, 2018, are also be­ing re­minded to check they are in­cluded.

With the an­nual voter reg­is­tra­tion can­vass now un­der­way, a house­hold en­quiry form is go­ing out to all house­holds in the towns.

To re­main on the elec­toral reg­is­ter and to be able to vote in any fu­ture elec­tions, res­i­dents should com­plete this form and re­turn it as soon as pos­si­ble.

Re­turns can be made in a va­ri­ety of ways in­clud­ing via a freep­hone or text ser­vice where de­tails on the form have not changed. There is also an on­line op­tion where changes can be made.

Elec­toral reg­is­tra­tion of­fi­cer, Gary Ben­nett, said: “The use of a range of ser­vices makes con­firm­ing de­tails easy and saves the coun­cil money com­pared to the costs of re­turn­ing the pa­per form through the post.”

Any­one with queries can con­tact the La­nark­shire elec­toral reg­is­tra­tion of­fice on 0800 030 4333.
