Filling out a voter registration form

People in Middlesbrough are being urged not to lose their right to vote.

Households have until Wednesday, November 30 to complete and return their electoral registration form.

Anyone who has lost their form or who has not received it can call 01642 729771.

Middlesbrough Electoral Registration Officer John Stuart said: “If you’re not on the electoral register you can’t vote.

“We estimate there are still 26,035 households who have not returned their forms.

“If a household fails to complete and return the form then people living there won’t be on the updated register.

“It’s not too late - today I’m urging all those eligible to vote in Middlesbrough who haven’t yet done so to complete and return the form on time.”

The registration form gives people the option of being on the ‘full’ or the ‘edited’ register. The edited version is the one that can be used for commercial activities such as marketing.
