Don't miss out on the right to vote

REGISTER your right to vote.
Warrington Borough Council has delivered electoral registration forms across the town.
Alison McCormick, the council’s electoral services manager, said: “It only takes individuals a few minutes to complete the form by phone, on paper or better still online.
“Please note that being on the council tax register doesn’t automatically mean you’re on the electoral role. So you could be paying council tax without being able to vote and having no say in how the council is run.”
For each household it is a legal requirement to return the electoral registration form by November 6.
If not the council will send officers out to collect the forms house by house. You need to be included on the form if you are 18 or over, a British, Irish, European or qualifying Commonwealth citizen, 16 or 17 years old so that you are eligible to vote when you are 18.
You can register by calling the 24-hour free phone service on 0800 197 5778. You can text 80212 or register online at registerbyinternet.com/warrington.
