Reminder to register to vote

People living in Leeds are being reminded to respond to their register of electors form

The deadline to respond is Friday 17 August.

It is a legal requirement to ensure that people's names are on the electoral register in time to vote in the Police and Crime Commissioner elections in November.

The canvass is happening earlier this year due to the elections on 15 November. Households are encouraged to respond quickly so they don’t lose their right to vote.We have tried to make it as easy as possible for people to respond to us by making use of modern communication methods. It helps us tremendously in cutting down on costs if people can respond via text or online if their details are unchanged and makes the process quicker and easier for everyone.
