Are you registered to vote in the General Election?
Voters will go to the polls on Thursday, June 8

JUST a few days remain to register to vote in the general election on June 8. 

The deadline is midnight on Monday (22) for the polls deciding MPs for Rotherham, Rother Valley and Wentworth and Dearne.

Anyone not registered to vote at their current address can visit www.gov.uk/registertovote.

Sharon Kemp, Rotherham Borough Council’s acting returning officer, said: “With just days to go, we urge people to make sure they are registered to ensure their voice is heard on June 8.

“This election is an opportunity to have your say on who will represent the people of Rotherham at a national level, so it’s important that people make sure they are eligible to vote on the day.”

Anyone unable to vote in person can apply for a postal or proxy vote. Applications to vote by post must be made by 5pm on Tuesday (23).

Applications for proxy voting, where someone else can cast your vote for you, must be made by 5pm next Wednesday (31).

The Advertiser has invited all candidates in the borough to write mini manifestos. You can view the ones we have received here.
