If you are registered to vote you should have received a letter from Rochdale Council this week confirming who is registered to vote at your house. Please do double check your post – the letter will not be addressed to you by name – it will say ‘The Occupier’ along with your address.
Check the details in the letter carefully and contact the council if any details are incorrect or incomplete. You will find details of how to do this in the letter.
If you are not already registered to vote by post, you should also find postal voting registration forms in the envelope along with a pre-paid envelope.
While we are slowly moving out of Lockdown and restrictions will reduce in the coming weeks and months; many voters around the Borough are registering for a postal vote to ensure that they can vote safely and conveniently. Simply complete the postal voting forms for each registered voter in your household and return them to Rochdale Council in the pre-paid envelope to ensure you can vote safely.
If you didn’t get postal voting forms included in the letter, you can download them here.
If you are not currently registered to vote, you can do that here. It takes about five minutes. But do hurry – last date to register so that you can vote in this years local elections is 19th April 2021.
It is expected that new voter registrations will be high this year – so registering early should ensure that you will be able to vote on 6th May.
