Time is running out to make sure you can take part in the General Election on 8 June. Take action now if you are not already registered to vote. It’s quick and easy to register, but after the deadline of 22 April, it will be too late.
For residents in Victoria Ward there is also a by-election for your Ashford Borough Council councillor on 8 June.
Research shows that young people, students and recent home movers are particularly less likely to be registered to vote. So if you have moved house recently, then make sure you’re registered correctly. If you’re not registered, you won’t be able to have your say on issues that directly affect your day-to-day life.
If you will be unable to attend your polling station on 8 June you can apply for a postal vote or a proxy vote. You can apply for all elections or for a single election for which you are unable to attend the polling station. If you are in Victoria Ward don’t forget to apply for the by-election as well as the General Election – you can do so by applying for a postal vote or proxy for a period that includes the election day.
