Make sure you’re on the electoral register

Are you on the electoral register?

Pendle Council is reminding residents to check they are on the electoral register ahead of the elections in May.

On Thursday 4th May there will be elections to Lancashire County Council.

No Borough Council elections are taking place this year.

Pendle residents have until Thursday 13th April to get on the Register of Electors to be eligible to vote.

If your name isn’t included in the electoral register, you simply won’t be able to vote. 

You can check the electoral register in Number One Market Street, Nelson as well as in Barnoldswick Council Shop.

You can also view it at Nelson, Colne and Barnoldswick libraries.

Alternatively, call the elections office on (01282) 661662 and staff in our Elections Team will check it for you.

Gillian Turpin, Pendle Council’s Elections Manager, said: “By checking if you’re in the register you’ll ensure you can have your say at the County Council elections in May.”

Registering to vote is easy and can now be done online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
