  • Website News Story Pic (3)

The last chance to register to vote for May’s local elections in Charnwood is April 12.

Charnwood Borough Council has 52 councillors across 28 wards and all seats are up for election on May 2 this year. Parish and town council seats across the borough are also up for election.

There are 131,207 people on the electoral register in Charnwood so most residents are already registered. However, if you are not, please visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote before April 12.

Geoff Parker, Returning Officer, said: “I would encourage people who are not already registered to vote to apply sooner rather than later.

“Although the last date to apply is April 12, if you leave it until the last minute and there are any issues with your application then you may not be registered in time to vote in May’s local elections.”
