Changes to electoral register

Reminder letters are being sent to people who have not yet registered under the new Individual Electoral Registration system.

The system came into effect on September 19, replacing the household registry system with a requirement to register individually.

The Electoral Registration Officer for Angus Council has already written to all electors in the area to inform them of the change.

Many electors have automatically moved onto the new register but some still need to take action to remain on it.

For the first time this can now be done online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. When registering please have your National Insurance number handy.

People are automatically included on the open register unless they opt out, which does not affect voting rights at all.

For details visit www.gov.uk/yourvotematters or contact The Electoral Registration Officer for Angus Council on 01307 462416.
