European elections will be taking place across the UK and Herefordshire on Thursday 22 May and Herefordshire Council is urging residents to check that they’re registered to vote.
Councillor Tony Johnson, leader of Herefordshire Council, said: “It is important for everyone to exercise their right to vote and have a say in what happens in local, national and European government and parliamentary matters.
“To register to vote in the forthcoming European elections on Thursday 22 May, residents will need to have registered by Tuesday 6 May. If you are on the electoral register, it not only allows you to vote, but can also improve your credit rating.”
A poll card, which confirms the election date and your polling station, is being sent to everyone who is registered to vote. If you do not receive your card within the next seven days, please contact the electoral services office on 01432 260107.
There is still time to be added to the electoral register for the European elections. If you are unable to go to a polling station and would like to request a postal vote, you have until Wednesday 7 May.
