All households in Wealden will soon be receiving their annual voters enquiry form which helps make sure the information the Council holds on the Electoral Register is up-to-date.
As well as making sure the electoral register is up-to-date, the annual form helps to notify residents who are not registered so that they can take part in future elections and referendums.
With the East Sussex County Council elections taking place in May 2017, this is an opportunity for residents to make sure that when voting takes place their voice can be heard.
“Anyone who wants to vote must be registered” said Charles Lant, Electoral Registration Officer at Wealden District Council “To make sure you are able to have your say at any forthcoming elections, simply review your form when it arrives and respond as promptly as possible. You can do this by returning the form, calling 0800 197 9871, texting 80212 or online.
“If anyone who is eligible to register is not listed on the form, they can add their name by going online to www.householdresponse.com/wealden (external link) and following the instructions. Or they can amend and post the form back in the envelope provided. An invitation to register will then be sent to each new person named on the form.
It’s particularly important to make sure you are registered if you have moved recently.”
Any residents who have any questions can email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01892 602417.
