Don’t forget to register to vote

Don’t lose your vote – make sure you’re registered to vote:

The council wants to make sure that as many citizens as possible have registered to vote, as those who aren’t registered quite simply will be unable to vote and may find difficulty in obtaining a bank account or credit.

If you need to register to vote, the quickest and easiest way to do this is online at:  www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

If you need help to register online you can visit your local library or the council’s Citizen Service Point at 100 Temple Street. If you can’t register to vote online, you can print paper forms from the gov.uk website. You can also call the council on 0117 922 3400 and they’ll send you a registration form. You can’t register over the phone.

It’s a legal requirement to register to vote and citizens could face a fine of up to £80 if they don’t register.
