Are you among the 44,000 who have signed up to the electoral register?

15 September 2017

Residents who have yet to sign up to this year’s electoral register are being urged to join the 44,000 people in Bridgend County Borough who have already made sure they will be able to vote, avoid potential problems obtaining credit and more.

The 2017 electoral canvass is about to enter its final phase and canvassers will soon start calling at the homes of people who have not yet registered.

The canvassers, who will be wearing photo- identity cards and carrying official documentation, will encourage as many people as possible to join the electoral register before the final canvass deadline for the next register update expires on 20 November.

As well as enabling voters to have their say during elections, being on the electoral register helps avoid problems with obtaining credit or applying for things like mobile phone contracts, mortgages or passports.

Registration is free, quick and easy. Forms featuring unique identity codes have already been sent to all households, and you can also register online, send an SMS message or call a dedicated freephone number – full details are on the canvass forms.

Council Leader Huw David said: “So far, online registration has proven to be the most popular method with more than 400 people a day choosing to register in this way.

“There are still around 19,000 households that have not responded to letters from the Electoral Services team, so with the register set to be published on 1 December, our canvassers will be calling on them to ensure that as many eligible voters as possible won’t miss out on having their say.”
