Join the drive and register to vote today

Anyone in West Oxfordshire not registered to vote is being urged to sign up in time for key elections this year.

Next week the National Voter Registration Drive (NVRD) will be encouraging people to register to vote ahead of West Oxfordshire District Council elections, parish and town council elections and Police and Crime Commissioner elections on Thursday 5 May.

Keith Butler, electoral registration officer for West Oxfordshire District Council, said: “Anyone not yet registered to vote should do so as soon as possible so they can have their say on issues that affect their day-to-day lives.

“I would also remind residents that if they have moved house, they need to register at that address. It is also worth noting that once registered, people will be eligible to vote in the European Union Referendum which will take place before the end of next year.”

The NVRD runs between Monday 1 and Friday 7 February with people encouraged to apply to register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

The deadline for applying to register to vote in the elections is Monday 18 April 2016.
