Make sure you can have your say at the elections in May

Published: Tuesday, 8th March 2022


Pendle residents are being encouraged to make sure they can have their say on who represents them at the elections in May.

On Thursday 5 May there will be elections to Pendle Borough Council and to have your say, you must be on the electoral register.

“It’s particularly important for anyone who has recently turned 18 or moved home to make sure you’re registered to vote at your current address,” stressed Andrea Mullin, Pendle Borough Council’s Elections and Registration Manager.

The deadline to register to vote is midnight on Thursday 14 April.

It takes just five minutes to apply online at

If you were registered to vote in the last election and your details have not changed, you don’t need to do anything.

There are a number of ways you can vote.

  • In person at a polling station
  • Postal vote
  • By appointing someone you trust to vote in your place, known as a proxy vote

The deadline to apply for a postal vote is 5pm on Tuesday 19 April, and for a proxy vote the deadline is 5pm on Tuesday 26 April.

Visit the Council’s website to apply for a postal or proxy vote – and select voting.

You can check if you’re on the electoral register by calling (01282) 661662 or emailing and staff in our Elections Team will check it for you.
