Time to check that you can vote
WITH Cornwall set to go to the polls in May residents are being encouraged to check that they are registered to vote.
The election on May 2 will see all 123 seats at Cornwall Council up for grabs for the first time since the unitary council was formed in 2009. Parish and town councils across Cornwall are also set to hold their elections.
A new register of electors was published by the council on March 1 and you need to be on this register to cast your vote on May 2.
Anyone who is not registered, or whose name or address has changed in recent months, must apply to register by April 17 to be in time for the elections in May. Registration forms are available from the council's electoral services or from the council website at www.cornwall.gov.uk/elections
