Want to Vote? Make Sure Your Voice is Heard

Tuesday 6th April 2010

Bedford Borough Council is urging people across the borough to make sure they are registered to vote in next month’s General Election.

As expected, the General Election will take place on the 6th May. That means if you are not currently registered to vote, you have until the 20th of April to do so. If not, you won’t be able to have your say.

Enrolling on the electoral register is easy. Simply download a form from the Bedford Borough Council website (www.bedford.gov.uk/democracy) or the About My Vote website (http://www.aboutmyvote.co.uk/). Fill it in and then post it back. Or, you can collect a form from Bedford Town Hall.

You must be at least 18 years old on the 6th May to register for this election and must be a British, Commonwealth or Irish citizen living in the Bedford Borough area. 

Keith Simmons, Head of Voter Registration, said: “It is vital as many people as possible are able to vote and have their say next month.

“However, in order to have your voice heard you must be registered on the Electoral Register. Having your name added to the list is simple but time is running out.

“I urge everyone to ensure they are registered to vote before the 20th of April deadline.”
