Call for people to make sure they are registered for local elections in Rutland and South Kesteven
Both Rutland and South Kesteven residents have until April 12 to register to vote in the upcoming local elections on May 2.
The polls will be open for elections to Rutland County Council and South Kesteven District Council, along with town and parish councils.
Helen Briggs, returning officer for Rutland County Council, said: “If you want to vote in the forthcoming elections and have a say on who will represent your community at a local level over the next four years, you must be registered to vote.
"Once your application has been processed, we will write to you to confirm that you’ve been added to the electoral register."
