Deadline approaching to register to vote

Published Wednesday 2 April 2014 at 14:13

Voters who want to have their say in this year’s local and European elections have until early May to register to vote.

The deadline for applications to register to vote is May 6.

When you register, you get the chance to have a major influence in decisions that affect you.

Requests for postal votes also close on May 7.

The elections for Council and the European Parliament elections take place on May 22. For more information visit the elections section of the website.

Harry Catherall, returning officer for Blackburn with Darwen, said: “The right to vote in elections is a fundamental part of living in an open and democratic society. I would urge all residents to exercise that freedom and have their say. If you don’t vote, you don’t have a say in how things are run.”
