Time is running out for people across Burnley borough to make sure they are eligible to vote in the Lancashire County Council election and Directly Elected Mayor referendum on 4th May.
In order to have your say you must be registered to vote. Poll cards are currently being delivered across the borough – if you receive one you are registered to vote.
However, if you don’t, or you’re not sure if you are registered, the deadline to do so is Thursday 13th April.
Burnley Council’s elections officer Alison Stirling said: “If you aren’t registered to vote you’ll miss out and won’t have the chance to have a say in the referendum on how Burnley Council is run, and in the election to choose your county council representatives.”
It’s easy to register but you will need your National Insurance number.
You can register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote, or by contacting the elections office on 01282 477261.
Voters are also reminded that the deadline to apply for a postal vote is 5pm Tuesday 18th April, and for a proxy vote 5pm Tuesday 25th April.
