Have you received your poll card?

This week election poll cards are being posted to all West Oxfordshire residents who have registered to vote at the local and General elections on Thursday 7 May 2015.

Residents should receive their poll cards by Friday 10 April and the District Council is urging anyone who does not receive one to get in touch.

Electoral Registration Officer Keith Butler is also advising residents not registered to vote to act now if they want to have their say come May. He said, “If you have not received your poll card by 10 April, it could mean you are not on the electoral register.

“You can now apply to register online. This is the simplest and fastest way, taking about 5 minutes. Just fill in your name, address, date of birth, national insurance number and a few other details.

“Please remember, paying council tax does not automatically add you to the electoral register.”

For more information, including checking to see if you are registered and how to register if not, call the elections team on 01993 861410 or visit www.westoxon.gov.uk/register

The deadline for receiving ‘register to vote’ applications is Monday 20 April.
