MAKE SURE OF YOUR VOTE.
The way we register to vote in elections to Parliaments and Councils has changed.
When registering we now have to give our National Insurance Number and Date of Birth as well as our name and the address where we live.
Many millions of people haven’t done this. So they are set to be taken off the register on 1 December and lose their right to vote. Based on those registered on 1st December there will be boundary changes to voting constituencies; so if you are not registered you may lose your MP too!
It’s easy to register on-line at www.gov.uk/registertovote
