Still time to register to vote


Gloucestershire County Council is reminding people to register to vote for the upcoming county council elections.

The deadline to register is Thursday 13th April. Anyone who does not register before this date will not be eligible to vote on 4th May.

You can register to vote by visiting https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.

To be able to vote, you must:

  • be registered
  • be 18 or over on the day of the election (polling day)
  • be a British, Commonwealth or EU citizen
  • be resident at an address in the area you wish to vote in
  • not be legally excluded from voting

We would urge all those eligible to vote, to register and have their say. Your vote matters. Voting in your county council election gives you the chance to have your say on important issues that affect you locally.

Voting can also affect you in other ways. Did you know being registered to vote can make it easier for you to apply for a loan or mortgage? It can even help your credit score.

Pete Bungard, county returning officer and chief executive of Gloucestershire County Council, said: “You still have time to register. Make sure you spare a few minutes to register, its really simple.

“Voting is a privilege and responsibility. When you vote, you have the power to make your voice heard.”
