Being registered to vote gives you a say in any future elections and on who represents you in local and national elections.
Good reasons to register:
- It gives you a say in important issues – from roads and recycling to education and the environment
- It contributes to your credit score – e.g. for mobile phones and mortgages.
- It’s an offence not to register – although you can opt out of the ‘open register’, which is available for sale and general use.
If you don’t register, you can’t vote! – it’s as simple as that.
It’s free, easy and quick to do online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote (you’ll need your National Insurance Number) or you can call on 01274 431360.
