Thousands risk losing their vote in police commissioner electionsLast updated: 08 October 2012 08:43
Residents in Portsmouth are being urged to make sure they don’t lose the chance to have their say in the police and crime commissioner elections on Thursday 15 November.
Over the last two months, households in the city have received an annual voter registration form, which should be returned to Portsmouth City Council by Thursday 11 October.
Those who have not received the form, or have lost it, should let the council know as soon as possible.
The council’s election services team leader, Ian Fitchett, said: “You have to be on the electoral register if you want to have your say in the first police and crime commissioner elections.
“We estimate that 8,000 households have not returned their forms. Some people wrongly assume that paying council tax means that you are registered to vote. I’m urging all those eligible to vote in Portsmouth to return their form as soon as possible.”
Residents can call the elections team on 023 9283 4074 or email email@example.com
