Residents urged to ensure they are registered to vote

Residents in North Yorkshire are being urged to check their electoral registration details or risk losing their chance to vote on decisions that affect them.

If you want to register, the easiest way is online at Register to vote - GOV.UK

Recent home movers are urged to check their details. Electoral Commission research has found that they are less likely to be registered than those who have lived at the same address for a long time. In Great Britain, 92 per cent of those who have lived in their home for 16 years will be registered, compared with 36 per cent of people who have lived at an address for less than a year.

Information on registering to vote is available on the Electoral Commission website,
