On Thursday 2 May, residents in Norwich will go to the polls to have their say on who represents them at a local level.
In order to vote in the upcoming local election, residents must be on the electoral register. With only two days until the deadline to sign up, Norwich City Council is urging residents who have not registered at their current address to make sure they do so in time.
The deadline to register to vote in the May local election is midnight on Friday 12 April. Anyone can apply online at gov.uk/register-to-vote. It takes just five minutes.
The big difference in this May's election is that all 39 councillors need to be elected at the same time due to a boundary review, meaning residents will be invited to vote for up to three candidates, rather than just one, to represent their ward.
Stuart Guthrie, democratic and elections manager for Norwich City Council, said:
"This 'all-out' election is an opportunity to make your voice heard and have a say on who represents you on issues that directly affect day-to-day life here in Norwich, but if you're not registered by 12 April, you won’t be able to vote.”
If you were registered to vote in the last election and your details have not changed, you will still be registered to vote. If in doubt, check your details by calling Norwich City Council on 0344 980 3333 or firstname.lastname@example.org
