Are you registered to vote?

Forms are being sent to households in North Kesteven to ensure that people continue to be able to exercise their right to vote.

Each property will be sent a form at the end of July that must be completed and returned. There are response options which include online, by telephone or by post - either to confirm the details contained on the Electoral Roll are correct or to amend if they have recently moved.

Registering to vote is required by law, enables you to have your say in local and national matters and helps with credit applications such as loans and mortgages.

Residents are being encouraged to complete their form as soon as they receive it. Not only does this take away the worry of having to remember to do it, but it ultimately saves the taxpayer money with fewer reminders needing to be sent out.

Ian Fytche, Chief Executive of North Kesteven District Council, said: “It is incredibly important that residents return the forms to us so that they are able to vote in any elections in the future.

“North Kesteven recently had the highest turnout in Lincolnshire in the recent EU Referendum, something people could only do if their details were correct on the Electoral Roll.

“It takes only a few minutes to check the forms and reply so I urge everyone to do so as soon as they receive it.”
