Ballot Box

Voter registration forms are dropping through letterboxes across Middlesbrough – residents are urged to return them as soon as possible to ensure their voice is heard in future elections.

Local Electoral Registration Officer John Stuart and his staff are sending forms to households in Middlesbrough over the coming months to compile the electoral register.

If you haven’t received your form you can contact your Electoral Registration Officer on 01642 729771.

John said: “Registering to vote is very simple. All you have to do is update the annual canvass form with the details of everyone in your household who is eligible to vote and return it to us as soon as possible.

“There was a lot of interest in this year’s referendum on the UK voting system and we were pleased with the increase in registration shortly before polling day.

“However, some people may not realise that they have to register every year.

“It is important that you complete and return the registration form so you’re able to take part in all upcoming elections.”

On your electoral registration form you can opt to have your details excluded from the edited register. This will mean your details cannot be bought by individuals and commercial organisations.
