Register and apply to vote by post in time to have your say
On Thursday 7 May residents in the borough of Rugby will go to the polls to have their say on who represents them at a local level.
This year, they will be voting in two different elections and will select Rugby Borough Councillors and The Police and Crime Commissioner, who holds the police to account.
In order to vote in this important election, residents must be on the electoral register and Rugby Borough Council is urging residents who have not registered at their current address to make sure they are registered in time and have applied for a postal vote if they would like one.
Adam Norburn, Electoral Registration Officer for Rugby Borough Council, said: “These elections are 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 Rugby.
If you’re not registered by 21 April, you won’t be able to vote. And if you want to vote by post you must apply in time.”
Residents who were registered to vote in the last election and whose details have not changed, and who don’t want to change the way that they vote, don’t need to take any action.
