Ashfield residents urged to register to vote

RESIDENTS across Ashfield should return the voter registration form being posted through their door as soon as possible to make sure they can vote in next year’s county council elections.

Philip Marshall, Ashfield’s electoral registration officer, said: “Some people may not realise that they have to register every year.

“This year we will be publishing the 2013 Electoral Register on 16th October which is earlier than usual due to the Police and Crime Commissioner elections on 15th November.

“Therefore, it is important that you return your registration form as soon as possible.”

Anyone who has not received a form by 9th July, contact Mr Marshall on 457321.
