2,000 Dumfries & Galloway residents still need to register to vote
Each summer we canvass all households in Dumfries & Galloway to confirm who is eligible to vote at each address.
We send a Household Enquiry Form to each house and the returns enable us to remove the names of those people who have moved out. We also collect the names of people who have moved in but we cannot add these names to the electoral register automatically; the law requires that anyone changing address makes an individual application to be added to the register.
To date we have approximately 2,000 residents we know have moved but haven't completed an individual application to register. Please check your mail and if you have an invitation to register to vote form please complete it and return it today.
Alternatively visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote and register to vote now.
