On Thursday 2 May residents in Ashfield will go to the polls to have their say on who represents them at a local level.
Local government elections select councillors, who are responsible for making decisions on running services in your local area. These include housing, planning, parks, leisure, public safety and waste management.
In order to vote in this important election, residents must be on the electoral register. The deadline to register to vote in local elections is fast approaching. With only five weeks to go until the deadline to register to vote in local elections, Ashfield is urging residents who have not registered at their current address to make sure they are registered in time.
The deadline to register to vote is midnight on Friday 12 April. Anyone can apply online at gov.uk/register-to-vote. It takes just five minutes.
