VOTERS in Solihull are being urged to make sure they are registered ahead of May’s local government elections.

On Thursday, May 5 Solihull voters will take to the polls to elect local councillors for Solihull and a Police and Crime Commissioner for the West Midlands.

But anyone who isn’t registered to vote won’t be able to take part and have their say.

The deadline to register to vote in these elections is Monday, April 18.

Registration can be done online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote and only takes a few minutes.

Nick Page, Electoral Registration Officer for Solihull Council said: “Anyone not yet registered to vote should do so as soon as possible so they can have their say on issues that affect their day-to-day lives.

“I’d urge people living in Solihull to use National Voter Registration Drive to spread the message amongst family and friends that it only takes a few minutes to complete the form and register to vote online.”

Local residents can contact Solihull’s electoral registration office via email at electoralservices@solihull.gov.uk or via telephone on 0121 704 6042.
