#NVRD – Join the drive and register to vote today

We are encouraging anyone not yet registered to vote, to take advantage of National Voter Registration Drive next week (1 to 7 February) and go online now to register.

On Thursday 5 May voters in South Gloucestershire will go to the polls to elect a Police and Crime Commissioner for the Avon and Somerset Police area.

Anyone who isn’t registered to vote won’t be able to take part and have their say. National Voter Registration Drive exists because it’s important that anyone who’s eligible, but has not yet registered to vote, does so. The good news is that it only takes a few minutes to join the thousands of people across the UK being encouraged to register at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

John McCormack, Electoral Registration Officer at South Gloucestershire Council, said: “Anyone not yet registered to vote should do so as soon as possible so they can have their say on issues that affect their day-to-day lives. I’d urge people living in South Gloucestershire to use National Voter Registration Drive to spread the message amongst family and friends that it only takes a few minutes to register online.”
