  • HAVE YOUR SAY The voter registration deadline is looming

The deadline to register to vote is midnight on Monday (22nd May).

Novelty offers to persuade young voters to sign up includes encouragement from Thorpe Park - the popular theme park has said it will offer 18-24s a ticket for just £20 if they bring along proof they have signed up to vote in the upcoming election.

The deadline to apply for a postal vote in the General Election is 5pm on Tuesday 23 May. "If you are unsure whether you are registered then it is definitely worth double checking by calling our elections team before it is too late".

Blackpool Council is warning anyone who has moved house in the last two years may have "fallen off" the register.

RESIDENTS in west Cheshire are urged to make sure they will have a voice in the 2017 General Election.

You will need to your National Insurance number to complete the form, and your passport if you're a British citizen living overseas. Alternatively you can contact the City Council's Electoral Services team on 0115 876 4111.

In the run-up to the general election, The Gazette will be profiling the candidates standing in local constituencies. According to the BBC, this has been put down to that Facebook reminder that went out to users across the United Kingdom, along with the fact that younger people are more likely to have changed addresses, and therefore need to register.

You will need your passport if you're a British citizen living overseas.

Constituents who were already registered to vote in the May elections do not need to register again to vote in the general election.
