Lichfield District Council is reminding locals to make sure they take the necessary steps to secure their vote.

In August Lichfield District Council sent household enquiry forms to all homes across the district. This confirms the details of everyone at each property who is 16 years and above and is currently on the Electoral Role.

Now the council is sending out reminders to all the local households that have not returned their forms.

Diane Tilley, Electoral Registration Officer for Lichfield District Council, said:

“It’s important that you respond to your household enquiry form. Please remember that returning it is not the same as registering to vote, and if anyone is not registered at your household they will need to do so. All of this information is available on the form and our reminder letter, so simply follow the steps to make sure you secure your vote.”

The council will also be sending out individual ‘invitations to register’ to everyone who has been added to household enquiry forms. The simplest way to register to vote is online at www.gov.uk/registertovote.

Stowe by-election

On top of carrying out the annual canvass, the council’s elections team is also holding the Stowe by-election on Thursday 27 September 2018, and is keen to remind locals living is the ward that the last date to apply for a new proxy vote is by 5pm on Wednesday 19 September.
