SEAFORD: Make sure you are registered to vote

SEAFORD residents are being reminded to return their voting registration forms as soon as possible.

The community in the Lewes district area are due to receive the letters shortly in order for the local Electoral Registration Officer to compile the electoral register.

People are asked to update the annual canvass form with the details of everyone in their household who is eligible to vote. If your details haven’t changed you can also reply by text, phone or internet.

There was a lot of interest in this year’s referendum on the UK voting system and an increase in registration shortly before polling day. But some people may not realise that they have to register every year.

If you haven’t received your form you can contact your Electoral Registration Officer on 01273 484116/484117.
