For Immediate Release
Remember to register to vote
Rotherham Council is encouraging anyone not yet registered to vote, to take advantage of the National Voter Registration Drive this week and go online now to register. The deadline to register to vote in these elections is Monday 18 April 2016.
On Thursday 5 May 2016, voters in Rotherham will go to the polls to elect all 63 local councillors in an all-out election which forms part of the Directions from the Secretary of State and a Police and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire. Anyone who isn’t registered to vote won’t be able to take part and have their say.
Whilst there is still time, it’s running out quickly so act now and register at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote by 18th April. This is your chance to join the thousands of people across the UK being encouraged to register this week.
Rotherham Council Chief Executive and Returning Officer, Sharon Kemp said: “These are the first all-out local elections in Rotherham for some time so it is especially important that you are able to cast your vote. It’s quick and easy to register online so please act now and help us to spread the word about the National Voter Registration Drive, particularly amongst those who have moved recently or who are eligible students.”
Local residents can also register by phoning 01709 336010.
Notes to Editors
1. National Voter Registration Drive is between 1 and 7 February 2016 and is led by Bite the Ballot.
2. Bite the Ballot (http://bitetheballot.co.uk/ ) aim to ensure that young people are engaged in political process and inspired to become change-makers.
3. The #NVRD campaign is led by Bite the Ballot and they work with partners, like the Electoral Commission and local authorities, to engage young people and encourage them to register to vote.
4. On social media the hashtag will be #NVRD and Bite the Ballot also use #TakePower
5. National Voter Registration Drive exists because it’s important that anyone who’s eligible, but has not yet registered, does so. Young people and students are much less likely to be registered to vote so #NVRD is as important as ever.
