Denbighshire County Council is encouraging local people to visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote to register to have their say on Thursday 5 May when voters in Wales will go to the polls to elect an Assembly Member and a Police and Crime Commissioner. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Electoral Commission has launched its major national voter registration campaign across Wales to remind people to register by the deadline of Monday 18 April. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

In Wales, advertising will appear across TV, radio and online on demand video services. This is in addition to the work that is already being carried out across Wales by the Commission and partner organisations, which started earlier this year. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The public awareness campaign across Wales aims to encourage anyone not yet registered, to do so as soon as possible. Research shows that young people, students, and recent home movers are less likely to be registered to vote. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Registering to vote is quick and easy to do online at gov.uk/register-to-vote but you only have until Monday 18 April if you want to vote in these elections in Wales this May. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
