    Electoral registration forms are landing on doormats of Stafford Borough residents. 

    The annual Household Enquiry Forms (HEF) will be delivered to around 60,000 homes across the area urging people to respond to ensure they are eligible to vote in future elections. 

    There are currently more than 100,000 people who are eligible to vote in the borough.

    Advice is available from www.staffordbc.gov.uk/how-do-you-register-to-vote or email elections@staffordbc.gov.uk or call 01785 619424.

    Stafford Borough has a good reputation when it comes to attendance at the polls with figures for local, national and EU elections exceeding the average national turnout.

    The deadline to respond is Friday 9 August and failing to do it can lead to a £1,000 fine.

    Borough Council Chief Executive, Tim Clegg, who is the Electoral Registration Officer, said local residents were among the best in the country at registering to vote.

    He continued: “I would also encourage people to check with family members and friends to ensure they register too.

    “Responding quickly to the registration form ensures the council doesn’t have to send out reminders and therefore saves money from the tax payer’s purse.”

    He added: “It is easy to register and you can do it very quickly especially online or by text which many of our residents now do.”
