Now is the time to make sure you are registered to vote in the local elections on 2 May.
Polling cards have been dropping through letter boxes in Stamford in the past few days – and if you don’t get one, this could mean you are not entitled to vote.
If you think you are not registered to vote, you may be unable to have your say in the district and parish elections.
People who may not be on the register include those who have recently moved house, or who have turned 18 since the last election.
To register, people should visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote and provide their date of birth and National Insurance number in addition to the usual details of name, address, previous address and nationality.
Residents need to supply their details by the deadline of Friday 12 April.
The dates and deadlines for the 2 May local elections are:
Friday 12 April: register to vote deadline
Monday 15 April at 5pm: postal vote application deadline
Wednesday 24 April at 5pm: proxy vote application deadline
Tuesday 2 May: polling day
More details on all of these deadline is at https://www.yourvotematters.co.uk/
