There are just days left for Manchester residents who want to vote in elections on 6 May to register to do so.
Local elections in all 32 of Manchester’s wards and elections to decide who will be the Mayor of Greater Manchester both take place on Thursday 6 May 2021.
The deadline for anyone who is not already on the electoral register to register in order to be able to vote is Monday 19 April 2021. This is the same deadline for both elections.
Meanwhile 5pm on Tuesday 20 April 2021 is the deadline for anyone wishing to request a postal vote. Polling stations will, however, be open 7am to 10pm on 6 May.
Joanne Roney OBE, Electoral Registration Officer for Manchester, said: "The last thing we want is for somebody who wants to have their say in these elections to miss out because they weren’t registered.
“Equally, we don’t want anyone who can’t make it to a polling station on the day for whatever reason to lose their vote.
“That’s why this message is important. If this is you, there are simple and straightforward steps you can take to ensure you can have your say.”
Anyone who is not already registered to vote can visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. You will just need your date of birth and national insurance number.
