With just a few days remaining before the April 20 registration deadline for the General Election, the Electoral Commission and Denbighshire County Council are calling for anyone who isn’t yet registered to go online and do so at www.gov.uk/registertovote before it’s too late.
The elections watchdog has been running a national media campaign reminding voters that they can’t take part in the election unless they have registered.
Electoral Commission research indicates that recent home movers, young people, students and those from certain BME communities are all less likely to be registered to vote.
The Commission’s campaign aims to let people know that everyone can now easily apply to register online; this is the first general election where this has been possible.
* The registration deadline is at midnight on Monday 20 April 2015.
