People who are not on the Register of Electors will not be able to vote in these elections or any other elections that may be held throughout the year. Not being on the Register of Electors may also affect your Credit Score.
Kim Webber, Electoral Registration Officer, said: “You need to be on the electoral roll to have your say in the upcoming West Lancashire Borough Council elections, and incorrect details may result in residents not being able to vote – so it really is worth taking the time to check.”
