Don’t lose your vote in 2012

Voter registration forms will soon be dropping through letterboxes across Chesterfield and people are being urged to return them as soon as possible to make sure their voice is heard in elections in 2012.

Chesterfield local Electoral Registration Officer, Huw Bowen said: “There was a lot of interest in this year’s referendum on the UK voting system and we were pleased with the increase in registration shortly before polling day. However, some people may not realise that they have to register every year.”
