Lichfield and Burntwood residents urged to make sure they’re registered to vote in the 2017 General Election

People in Lichfield and Burntwood are being reminded that they need to be registered in order to have their say in the 2017 General Election.

The vote will take place on June 8, but people only have until May 22 to ensure they can take part.

Anyone already registered does not need to re-apply, but Lichfield District Council says some who have moved house or have just turned 18 will need to sign up.

Diane Tilley, electoral registration officer for Lichfield District Council, said: “We want as many eligible local voters as possible to be able to have their say in the general election. This is why we’re reminding everyone to take a moment to check that they have registered to vote.

“If you are registered, you should have received a poll card for the county council elections that took place on May 4. If you didn’t receive a poll card, this means it is possible that you are not on the register of electors and will need to register to be able to vote in the general election in June.”
