With Valentine’s Day nearly upon us Eastbourne Borough Council is encouraging local residents to also make a date to register to vote.

Robert Cottrill, chief executive at Eastbourne Borough Council, said, “Anyone not yet registered to vote should do so as soon as possible in order for them to be able to have their say on issues that affect their lives. I’d urge Eastbourne residents to spread the message amongst family and friends who may not have registered yet that it only takes a few minutes to complete the form online.”

You can register to vote at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or call 415001 for a paper copy of the form.
