West Lancashire Borough Council are writing to everyone to make sure you are on the electoral register and entitled to vote. Your letter should arrive week beginning 20 July and if you’re not currently registered you can find more information in the Council’s request form or online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
All elections due to take place this year were cancelled due to Coronavirus and so West Lancashire Borough Council, Lancashire County Council and the Police & Crime Commissioner elections will be in May 2021.
Jacqui Sinnott-Lacey, Electoral Registrations Officer, said: “Your say in local elections are so important so if you have moved house or if there are any other changes such as a family member becoming 18 then please let us know.”
Being on the electoral register also impacts on your credit score as it provides valuable proof of your identity and address to lenders.
