East Devon residents are being urged to make sure they are registered to vote in time for this year’s Devon County Council elections.

East Devon District Council is reminding voters that they need to register by the deadline of Thursday 13 April, otherwise they won’t be able to take part in the elections on May 4.

Mark Williams, electoral registration officer for East Devon said: “Time is running out to make sure you can take part in elections this May, so I’d encourage everyone in East Devon to take action now if they’re not already registered to vote.

“It’s quick and easy to register, but after the deadline of April 13, it will be too late.”

The appeal comes as the Electoral Commission launches a national campaign to encourage as many people as possible to register ahead of elections happening this year.
