Take a minute – to register

Thousands of people across Gloucester are being asked to put aside a couple of minutes – and register to vote.


A total of 33,000 in the City – a return rate of 60% - have already made sure they can vote in any forthcoming elections.


But that leaves 21,000 who still have to confirm their details.


Now City Council electoral registration staff are reminding them that it only takes a couple of minutes to complete the registration process.


Registration forms were sent out in October. If residents don't need to make any changes to their details then they can respond online, by telephone or text message.


Reminders will be going out in the next few days and any residents who have received a form should contact the Council on 01452 396396.


Julian Wain, the Electoral Registration Officer for Gloucester City Council, said: "Registering to vote is quick and simple.  All you have to do is update the annual canvass form with details of everyone aged 16 and over living in the household who is eligible to vote and return it to us as soon as possible. 


"If the details printed on the form haven't changed you can respond by Freephone or online, but you will need to have your voter registration form to hand when you use any of these methods. 


"You can also opt out of the 'edited' register of electors, or request a postal vote, when using the Freephone or online service.  Full instructions are provided on the form.  It's your vote, don't lose it."


For more information or assistance with registering to vote, contact the Elections Team on 01452 396396.
