Residents are being asked to look out for a letter from Pendle Borough Council asking whether your details on the electoral register are correct.

This is an important opportunity for everyone to make sure they can have their say on local issues when elections take place.

Known as the Annual Household Canvass, this step ensures that the Council can keep the electoral register up to date.

Philip Mousdale, Corporate Director and Returning Officer, said: “It’s really important that everyone looks out for the letters which are being set out to all homes across the borough.

“Please respond by following the instructions on your letter.
