Register to vote today and make sure you have your say

Less than 100 days to the General Election. We're encouraging any local residents not yet registered to vote, to take advantage of National Voter Registration Day and go online now to register.

We are urging all residents to exercise their right to elect a Member of Parliament for Kingston and Surbiton, and Richmond Park. Registration is easy, just visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.

Kevin Davis, Leader of the Council said,

“Anyone not yet registered to vote should do so as soon as possible in order for them to be able to have their say on issues that affect their lives. I urge all borough residents to use National Voter Registration Day to spread the message amongst family and friends who may not have registered yet, that it only takes a few minutes to complete the form online.”

Kay Jenkins, Head of English regions at the Electoral Commission, said:

“National Voter Registration Day exists because it’s important that anyone who’s eligible to be on the register, but has not yet registered, does so.

Young people, students and people who move frequently are much less likely to be registered to vote. We’re urging them to use the day as an opportunity to get onto the electoral register.”

All properties in the borough have also received a letter with details of who is currently on the electoral register for that property. Anyone living at the property, but whose name is not on the letter, should register to vote at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.

Local residents can obtain a paper copy of the registration form by contacting the electoral registration office on [email protected] or by telephone on 020 8547 5026.
