Your vote matters, so don’t lose it

Your vote matters, so don’t lose it

Residents across Mansfield should have started receiving a form asking if the information that appears on the electoral register for their address is correct.

The forms were sent to homes last week as part of Mansfield District Council's annual voter registration canvass, which makes sure the electoral register is up to date.

If all the details on the form are correct, residents can respond quickly and easily by text, online or by post. The contact details are all on the form.

If any changes are needed, this can be done online or by returning the form.

Anyone who is added to the form will not automatically be registered to vote and this will need to be done separately at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote once they have responded to the form.

Reminders will be sent out in August to those who have not yet responded. Those that still do not respond will be visited at home during October and November. It is a legal requirement to provide the information requested and if you don't you could be fined £1,000.

The aim of the form is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so. It is particularly important that anyone who has moved address recently looks out for the form and checks they are registered.

This is an opportunity for residents to make sure that when elections take place they will easily be able to take part.

Jacqueline Collins, Electoral Registration Officer at Mansfield District Council, said: “To make sure you are able to have your say at future elections you must be registered to vote. To do this simply check the form and respond as quickly as possible.”

"If you're not currently registered, we'll send you information explaining how to do this or you can just go online to apply to register at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote."

For more help contact the council's Elections team on 01623 463345.
