40,000 failing to register vote

Have your say

ALMOST 40,000 households in Rotherham have still not registered to vote and officials are concerned they could miss out on May’s local election.

Forms were sent out to every household at the end of August to gather information for the new edition of the Register of Electors which will be published by December 1.

Around 112,000 forms were sent out initially and so far around 66 per cent of households have responded.
