Sign up to voters’ register

EREWASH residents are being urged to make sure they are signed up to the electoral role in the run up to the borough elections and AV referendum on Thursday, May 5.

Jeremy Jaroszek, Erewash Borough Council’s electoral registration officer, said: “We would urge people not to wait until the last minute – get in touch with us now.

“The countdown to May 5 is now well underway, so it is important that people are registered and have their right to vote.

“Likewise, anyone who thinks they will be unable to go along to a polling station on the election day can organise a postal vote by getting in touch with us by April 14.”
