Chief Executive Sue McGonigal said: "It is important people make sure they are on our electoral register. Unfortunately people often think that because they pay council tax they are automatically registered, but this is not the case.”
Registering to vote is simple. All residents need to do is update the annual canvass form with the details of everyone in their household who is eligible to vote online at www.thanet.gov.uk or return the voter registration form to us as soon as possible.
Anyone needing more information about the annual canvass, the voter registration form itself or elections generally should contact the Elections Office on 01843 577500, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
