One week to go!

Vote - Register Newsroom

Register to vote now, to have your say on Thursday May 5.

With only one week to go until the deadline, Herefordshire Council is encouraging residents to make sure they are registered to vote.

On Thursday May 5 voters in Herefordshire will go to the polls for Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) elections.

The deadline to register, if you want to be able to vote and have your say at these elections, is Monday April 18.

Ben Brook, Head of the Electoral Commission, English Regions, said:

“The deadline to register is Monday 18 April 2016 so there is not long left to make sure you are registered and able to take part in these important elections on 5 May."

“Our research shows that the biggest reason people give for not being registered is moving house, with nearly half of people in England giving this as an explanation. If you’re not registered, you won’t be able to have your say on issues that directly affect your day-to-day life in your local area.”

If you are not able to make it to your polling station on Thursday 5 May, the deadline for postal vote registration is Tuesday April 19.

If you have not registered by this date, you cannot vote.
