Plea to make sure people can vote

ELECTIONS officers are urging residents to make sure they register to vote.

Rotherham Council has sent forms to households which must be returned to ensure people are eligible to vote for local council elections on Thursday, May 3, next year and also elections for both Police and Crime Commissioners, if Government proposals go ahead.

Around 112,600 voter registration forms have been delivered.

Anyone who has not received a voter registration form should contact the Electoral Registration Officer at Rotherham Council on 01709 823590. Alternatively, they can be printed off at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk.
