There are only days left for Thanet residents to ensure that they have a vote in this year's General Election.

To be able to vote in the election on Thursday 6 May, you must be on the Electoral Register by Tuesday 20 April at the latest.

Registering to vote only takes a few minutes, by printing off a form from, which is the website of the independent elections watchdog, the Electoral Commission. You can also call Thanet District Council's electoral services on 01843 577500 to request a form.

People are also being warned that they might not be registered if they have moved home recently, as you need to contact the council or visit the Electoral Commission website to re-register at your new address.

Electoral Registration Officer, Richard Samuel, said: "We want to ensure that people don't lose out on their right to vote in the upcoming General Election. It's vital that people have the chance to have their say. It's a simple process that will only take a few minutes of your time and will ensure that your voice isn't lost on Thursday 6 May. The council sent out registration forms to every home in Thanet last autumn, but if you are not sure whether you returned it, or if you have moved house since then and not registered with your new address, you need to take action now, before it's too late."
