People in Lichfield and Burntwood are getting a reminder to make sure they have a chance to cast their vote in elections.

In autumn 2013, Lichfield District Council started the huge task of compiling a new electoral register – a process which included sending 43,750 annual canvass forms to households.

But in an effort to make sure no one who is eligible to vote is missed out, reminders have been sent out and in the coming weeks canvassers will be going door to door to households who have still not registered to make sure everyone fills in and returns their form.

Diane Tilley, Electoral Registration Officer for Lichfield District Council, said: “Registering to vote is quick and simple. All you need to do is respond to the annual canvass with the details of all the people who live in your household that are eligible to vote.

“It is important to play your part in the democratic process, so please do register.”
