People in Bourne and the Deepings are being urged to take advantage of National Voter Registration Drive Week ahead of elections in May.

The week, from Monday, February 1 until Sunday, February 7, is a chance for people to make sure of their right to vote in the Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner election on May 5.

Anyone not registered to vote before the deadline of April 18 can’t take part in the election two weeks later.

Beverly Agass, electoral registration officer for South Kesteven District Council (SKDC), said: “Anyone not yet registered to vote should do so as soon as possible so they can have a say on the issues that affect their day-to-day lives.

“I would urge people living in the district to use National Voter Registration Drive Week to spread the message amongst family and friends that it only takes minutes to complete the form and register to vote online.”
