Register to vote now for the general election in July

Anyone who has not yet registered to vote is being encouraged to do so now in time for the general election on 4 July.

John Hill, the Acting Returning Officer for the Ely and East Cambridgeshire Constituency, said: “Registering to vote only takes a few minutes and it means you have the opportunity to have your say in the general election.

“If you are in doubt about whether you need to register to vote, have questions about how to apply for a postal or proxy vote, or free voter ID, you can contact our electoral services team on 01353 665555.

“Being on the electoral register can also help with your credit score which can be important for things like buying a car, opening a bank account, getting a mobile phone contract or applying for a mortgage.”
