    Time is ticking away for people in Stafford Borough to register to be able to vote in next month’s General Election.


    The deadline for registration to make sure you can have your say is Tuesday 26 November.


    Polling cards have already been landing on the doorsteps of nearly 60,000 homes across the borough for the election on Thursday 12 December.


    Acting Returning Officer, Tim Clegg, the Chief Executive of Stafford Borough Council, is urging residents not to miss out on the chance to vote.


    “Democracy is something you only miss when it is not there. Taking part in these elections gives you the opportunity to say who will be running our government.”


    “There is only a short period of time left to ensure you are able to vote so I’d encourage everyone to register if they have not already.”


    He added: “Our message is simple: to be able to vote you need to be registered by Tuesday 26 November. It’s easy to do and will only take a few minutes online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.”
