Your vote is your voice

Residents in Boston Borough urged to look out for their voter registration details in the post.

Local residents are being warned not to lose their voice on matters that affect them by completing their annual canvass form and returning it to their local authority as soon as possible.

With Borough and Parish Council elections taking place in the Boston Borough area in May 2019, this is an important opportunity for residents to make sure they can take part.

The form ensures that the electoral register is up to date and identifies any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so. This will mean that residents will be able take part in any future elections.

People who have moved address recently are particularly encouraged to keep an eye out for the form and check the details. Research by the independent Electoral Commission indicates that recent home movers are far less likely to be registered than those that have lived at the same address for a long time. Across Great Britain, 94% of people who have been at their property for more than sixteen years will be registered, compared to 40% of people who have lived at an address for less than one year.

Any residents who have any questions can contact their local registration team at elreg@boston.gov.uk or telephone 01205 314220 / 314221
