Are you registered to vote yet?

People in the Mansfield district have until 12 April to register to vote if they want to have their say in the local government elections in May.

Thursday 2 May will be election day when local people will be able to choose who they want as the their Mansfield District Councillor, Warsop Parish Councillor and Executive Mayor of Mansfield.

People who have not yet replied to written requests to register to vote, will be getting a knock on the door between now and mid March from Mansfield District Council canvass officers encouraging them to respond.

Council canvassing staff will be trying speak to people in person to encourage them to register to vote and if unsuccessful in gaining contact, will deliver a final reminder form.

The canvassers, who carry official Mansfield District Council identification, will not ask to enter residents’ properties and will assist residents to complete the form on the doorstep. Some canvassers will be using portable electronic devices to collect information.

Hayley Barsby, Electoral Registration Officer at Mansfield District Council, said: “With the district, parish and mayoral elections this year, make sure you have your chance to vote. Registering is very quick and easy.”

For further information, residents should contact the Elections team on 01623 463345.

Registering to vote can also be done online at: www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
