Don’t forget to register

voters are being urged to make sure they are registered to vote in time for the upcoming elections.

Derbyshire Dales District Council is organising district, town and parish council elections and a UK-wide referendum on Thursday, May 5.

The council’s head of democratic services Sandra Lamb said: “The deadline for receipt of registration forms is Thursday April 14 so if you’re not already registered, don’t delay.

“Also, if you know you’re going to be away from home on May 5 you can arrange to vote by post or by proxy.”

The deadline for applications for postal votes is 5pm today and for proxy appointments 5pm on Thursday April 21.
