Register to vote before November 1 deadline

People in Leeds are reminded that tomorrow is the deadline for registering to vote in the local and European elections in May 2014.

In total 340,000 registration forms have been sent out to all households in Leeds and details should be confirmed with Leeds City Council by November 1 to ensure everyone eligible to vote can do so.

If there are no changes to your details you can let the council know by text message, online or by calling a special Freephone number. Forms may also be returned free by post in the pre-paid envelope provided, although the council will save 17p for every household that uses internet, Freephone or text registration instead.

Doing this on time will also save the council further costs in sending out reminders by post or following up with visits to homes to check details, as required by law.

People with no changes should email electors@leeds.gov.uk , call Freephone 0808 284 1450, text 07786 209 350 or visit www.elecreg.co.uk/leeds to confirm this.

If you have further queries you can call the LCC elections helpline on 0113 222 4411. It is open from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.
