Homes in Bourne and the Deepings will be getting letters from tomorrow asking them to check whether their personal and address details are correct.

The letters are in connection with an annual voter registration effort by South Kesteven District Council to ensure people are registered to take part in polls for the new Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire next May.

With the Police and Crime Commissioner elections taking place in our area in May 2016, anyone that wants to vote must be registered.

Coun Kelham Cooke, South Kesteven District Council cabinet member for governance and communications

Coun Kelham Cooke, cabinet member for governance and communications at the district council, said: “The aim is to ensure that our electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so they can be encouraged to do so.

“With the Police and Crime Commissioner elections taking place in our area in May 2016, this is an opportunity for residents to make sure that when the elections take place, they will easily be able to take part because anyone that wants to vote must be registered.”
