Register now if you want to vote
Register it or lose it
Almost 100,000 people in Leeds have not yet confirmed their electoral registration details and risk losing the chance to vote in upcoming elections.
Forms were delivered to homes during August and residents were asked to complete them to ensure that the correct details are published on the 2010 register of electors. People who have not registered will not be able to vote. The new register will be be used for the general election that will be held no later than June 2010.
If electoral details are not confirmed by Wednesday 21 October, properties will be visited by canvassers to collect the details.
Alex Meek, Electoral Services Manager for the council, says: “We are working hard to update our electoral register and ensure that every resident, who is eligible to vote, can have their say on polling day, but we are unable to do so if residents do not respond to their canvassing forms.
If you have not yet replied there are a number of ways to respond to the form. Providing that details are unchanged, you can use text messaging, a free phone number or go online to confirm your details.
