election voting guide to be delivered across Burnham-On-Sea
District Council is sending a leaflet to every household in the
Burnham-On-Sea area in a drive to encourage more residents to
register to vote or check that they are registered for the forthcoming
Councils across the UK are being encouraged to make sure that
voters, especially younger people, are registered on the Electoral
Register so that they can have their say later this year.
The simple message behind the new leaflet is that if you are not
on the register of electors then you won't be able to vote.
"Funding for the project has been made available through
central government which provides a certain amount of cash for
local authorities to encourage more people to register to vote,"
council spokeswoman Claire Faun told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
"Voters are reminded that it is important to make sure you
have a right to vote and that starts by ensuring your name is
on the register, the next important stage is to make sure you
turn out on election day."
"If you are not registered to vote or not sure whether you
appear on the register of electors please contact Sedgemoor District
Council on 01278 435344."
