Advice to voters for Eastleigh by-election

With only a couple of weeks until the Eastleigh by-election, residents have only a few days to make sure they can vote or that they can vote by post.

A Council spokesperson said: "You must be on the electoral register if you want to vote and the deadline to do this is Wednesday 13 February.

"If you have recently moved to the area, or moved house it is important to make sure that you register at your new address."

If you would like to vote by post, you can pick up a postal application form from the Council's Civic Offices in Leigh Road or the Town Centre Office in Eastleigh.
