Register now for local elections
Voters have until Friday 12 April to register for the local elections in East Hampshire.
East Hampshire District Council and town and parish councils in the area will be holding elections on Thursday 2 May.
Residents who have not signed up to the electoral register in time will not be able to have a say on how their neighbourhood is run.
Gill Kneller, EHDC Chief Executive, said: “The local elections are vital opportunity for residents to have a genuine say in how their district is run.
“If you don’t get on the electoral register now you will not be able to take part.
“Registering to vote is easy and quick. You can do it online in a matter of moments or contact our elections team and they will help you.”
Registering to vote can be easily done online, you will need your date of birth and national insurance number and the whole process should take about five minutes.

If you need any assistance contact the Elections Team on 01730 234350.
Residents are also being reminded to make sure they know where their polling station is, as many of the voting places have been switched.
The changes have come about because of adjustments to East Hampshire District Council’s ward boundaries by the Local Government Boundary Commission.
Residents can find out where their polling station is by checking the polling card sent to their home or by going to wheredoivote.co.uk and entering their postcode.
