More than 86,000 poll cards will be hand-delivered to every Erewash resident who is on the voting register.
Delivery of the poll cards is the first key stage in the countdown to the EU referendum on Thursday 23 June, when voters will turn out to decide on the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union.
Erewash Borough Council’s poll card team will deliver the cards between Wednesday 18 May and Tuesday 24 May. The card gives electors their voter number and details of their polling station – or it will confirm details for those residents who have requested a postal vote.
Residents who want to check that they are registered to vote in Erewash can fill in a form online that will be responded to within one working day by the council’s elections team. Visit www.erewash.gov.uk and click on the ‘Your Council’ tab and follow the ‘elections’ link.
Residents who know they still need to register to vote can do so easily and quickly online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote before the deadline of Tuesday 7 June.
