Voters need to register

BROXTOWE borough residents will soon receive their 2012 electoral registration form.

Broxtowe Borough Council has to publish a new register of electors every year and forms will go to every household asking residents to check their details and make necessary changes.

Each year, two versions of the electoral register are compiled – the full register which lists the names and addresses of everyone who is registered to vote and the edited register is available for general sale and can be used for any purpose, including marketing. Anyone can opt out of having their details included in the edited version by ticking the box on the registration form.
