The City Council has reminded residents not to lose their democratic voice by making sure they complete and return the annual canvass form to their local Electoral Registration Office.
Forms, which ensure that anyone not on the Electoral Register can register to allow them to take part in future elections, were issued just over a week ago.
A spokesperson for the electoral registration office said :
“It is important that residents respond as soon as possible, so we can make sure we have the right details on the electoral register for every address in Dundee.
“Check the form when it arrives and respond as soon as you can, and that way you will be certain you’ll be able to have your say at elections.
“If you’re not registered at the moment, your name will not appear on the form. If you want to register, the easiest way is at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote, or we’ll send you information in the post explaining how to do it. In any case, you will still need to complete the form and send it back to us.”
People who have changed address recently are particularly encouraged to keep an eye out for the form and check the details when it arrives.
