Time is running out to register to vote

19 May 2017

ANYONE who wants to have a say on who will be the Isle of Wight's next MP, must be registered to vote by midnight on Monday.

If you're already registered to vote and haven't moved since the last election, you don't need to do anything but head to the polling station on voting day. Numbers tripled to more than 100,000 for the 2015 general election and then again more than doubled for the referendum, with around 264,000 registered at the end of past year.

Unlike the March Assembly Elections which in which the Single Transferable Vote system was used, the Westminster poll is first-past-the-post.

You will need to your National Insurance number to complete the form, and your passport if you're a British citizen living overseas.

If you will be unable to cast your vote in person on 8th June, you can apply for a postal or proxy vote. Make sure you return them before this date in the envelopes that are provided.

The straightforward voter registration process takes just a few minutes to complete online. That means if your 18th birthday falls on June 8 2017 or earlier, you can still vote in this general election.
