Time running out for Lichfield and Burntwood residents to register to vote in the 2019 General Election

People in Lichfield and Burntwood are being urged to make sure they are registered to vote ahead of the General Election.

Voters will go to the polls on 12th December, with three candidates declared so far:

  • Michael Fabricant – Conservatives
  • Paul Ray – Liberal Democrats
  • David Robertson – Labour

But residents only have until midnight on 26th November to register to vote.

Diane Tilley, electoral registration officer for Lichfield District Council, said: “The General Election registration deadline is fast approaching.

“This election is an opportunity to have your say on who will represent the people of Lichfield district at a national level, and we don’t want anyone to miss out.

“It’s especially important for students and recent home movers to check that they are registered properly.”

Anyone not already registered to vote at their current address can do so online at www.gov.uk/registertovote. Anyone unable to cast their vote in person on the day can apply for a postal or proxy vote.

The deadline to apply to vote by post at the general election is 5pm on 26th November. The deadline to apply to vote by proxy at the general election is 5pm on 4th December. 

For more details on applying for a postal or proxy vote visit www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/elections.

Lichfield District Council’s polling stations review – which was launched before the General Election was called – will not affect polling station locations this year.
