HOUSEHOLDERS have been urged to check that they are eligible to vote in the May elections.

HOUSEHOLDERS have been urged to check that they are eligible to vote in the May elections.
South Gloucestershire Council wants to ensure the information it has on record for each property is correct and that everyone entitled to vote is registered.
To vote in the General Election and local elections on May 7, people must be registered by April 20.
It is also necessary for anyone who wants to apply for credit to be on the register as credit reference agencies use it to establish where people live in order to prevent fraud.
Any South Gloucestershire resident who hasn’t received a letter from the council should contact the electoral services team by emailing electoral.services@southglos.gov.uk or calling 01454 863030.
