‘Don’t lose your vote in 2016’ is the message for people in the Boston area.
Households across the borough will shortly be receiving a letter giving details of people who are currently registered to vote at that address. If the information contained in the letter is correct you do not need to take any further action.
However, if people need to be added you can register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or you can call the Electoral Services Office on 01205 314220/314221 to obtain registration forms. If some or all of the people listed no longer live at the address you should also contact the Electoral Services Office to update the information.
An election for a new Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire is to be held on Thursday, May 5, and the EU Referendum has been called for Thursday, June 23. To be able to vote your name needs to be on the electoral register. Just because you pay council tax does not automatically mean you are registered to vote.
The register is also used by credit referencing agencies and if you are not registered you may experience difficulties in obtaining credit or a mortgage.
