Are you registered to vote?

Speaking to many residents of Peckham Rye in recent months, it's clear that interest is growing in the forthcoming local and national elections. However, there has been a small but significant number of people we've met on the doorstep who thought they were registered to vote but who weren't actually on the electoral register.

Regardless of which party or candidates people are thinking of voting for, we want to see as many people as possible registered to vote for the May 6th local elections (which is also a possible date for the general election.)

The deadline for registering to vote and applying for a postal vote in the 2010 elections is Tuesday 20th April. If you would like to check if you are registered to vote, or if you would like to have a registration/postal vote application form sent out to you, you can ring Southwark electoral services on 020 7525 7373. You can also get further information about registering to vote from Southwark's dedicated 2010 elections page here and the more general guide on how to register to vote in Southwark here.

We hope you will be registered to vote to ensure that your voice is heard on May 6th.
