RESIDENTS in Rotherham will receive electoral registration forms through the post earlier than usual this year.
Rotherham Council chiefs say the forms are being sent out to ensure the electoral register is as up-to-date as possible ahead of the first Police and Crime Commissioner elections on Thursday, November 15.
A council spokesman: “These are new elections and residents are being encouraged to complete their registration form and return it promptly to ensure they can have their say this November.”
About 114,000 voter registration forms are being delivered to households in the borough which will be processed over the coming months to compile the revised electoral register which will be published in October.
Residents who do not receive their form should call 01709 823590.
