“If you want to vote in the forthcoming elections and have a say on who will represent your community at a local level over the next four years, you must be registered to vote. If you’re not registered already, you have until 12 April to do this. Once your application has been processed, we will write to you to confirm that you’ve been added to the electoral register. You can then also apply to vote by post or by proxy if you’re not able to visit your polling station in person on Polling Day.”
