Residents in Lewes district are being urged to make sure their electoral registration details are correct so that their voice is heard on decisions that affect them.
The annual canvass ensures that Lewes District Council keeps the electoral register updated, identifying any residents who are not registered, so that they can be encouraged to do so. You have to be registered to vote in future elections.
People who have moved recently are particularly encouraged to look out for the voter registration messages from Lewes District Council and check the details.
Melanie Davidson, Head of Support and Improvement at the Electoral Commission, said: “It’s really important that everyone who is entitled to vote is able to do so. Making sure you provide the necessary information to your local authority when it is needed will ensure the process runs smoothly.”
